FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Eleven U.S. World War II veterans will be honored by the consul general of France.
The consul will award the veterans the "Knight in the National Order of the Legion of Honor" Sunday for fighting alongside France in World War II.
The ceremony is taking place at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale.
The French consulate in Miami says the ceremony will serve as a link between past, present and future generations. The US Naval Academy appointments class of 2017 and another group of youths will represent present and future generations at the event.
