House Minority Leader William Batchelder (R-Medina) has announced that State Representative Danny R. Bubp will be presented the Legion of Merit medal, an award offered by the armed forces to honor officers and those enlisted in the armed forces who have distinguished themselves by exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services.
The award ceremony will be held during a session of the Ohio House of Representatives at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 28.
“I am deeply honored to receive this award,” Bubp said. “I credit our success in Iraq to the surge and all of the young marines, soldiers, airmen and sailors I served with. I am deeply grateful to General Post for recommending me for this award and flying to Ohio to present it.”
