Earl Mills, a 100-year-old WWII paratrooper, has been awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d’Honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honor), France’s highest military and civic honor, for his sacrifices to free the country and the rest of Europe from the Nazi regime’s danger. He parachuted from a US Army aircraft over Normandy in particular. Last Thursday, he was presented with the prize at his Live Oak property. Napoleon Bonaparte established the medal in 1802 to recognize extraordinary service to France.
