W orld War II is long over, but a local veteran from that great conflict just recently received his medals of honor at a ceremony held in Wartburg.

At 91, A.B. Freytag still doesn’t like to talk about what happened during his time in service to the country.

“I had known for years and years he was a World War Two veteran, but when I was older it came up that he served under General Patton,” said son and Morgan County Sheriff Glen Freytag. “We did hear a few parts of stories, but he just didn’t talk about it much.”
