WARTBURG (WATE) – A World War II veteran in Morgan County earned the Bronze Star and other medals during his time in the service, but he was never presented with them. A.B. Freytag finally received the medals at a special ceremony Thursday in Wartburg, 70 years in the making.
Several people spoke at the ceremony about Freytag’s courage and sacrifice during the war. Freytag is currently a patient at Quality Hospice Care in Wartburg. They found out abut his story during an intake interview and worked with Sen. Bob Corker’s office to obtain his medals.
