Lex Porter died without ever revealing to his family that he was a code talker during World War II. So his family was surprised - and grateful - when the military decided to honor the late member of the Fond du Lac band of Ojibwe with a posthumous Medal of Honor.
The dog tag belonging soldier who died during World War II has been given to his 87-year-old sister in Duluth. Constance Cowan's brother James Cowan had been stationed in the Philippines on Corregidor island during World War II.
One-hundred World War II veterans are leaving Central Minnesota for Washington, D.C. tomorrow (Tuesday). They're part of the Honor Flight, a one-day trip to visit the Wold War II Memorial and other historic sites.
