guys.jpgTwo Metuchen residents received the Congressional Medal of Honor in a pre-Labor Day celebration last week at Borough Hall. Montfort Point Marines Daniel E. Robinson and Austin F. Banks were given their Gold Medals by Representative Frank Pallone, Junior, and the ceremony was hosted by the U.S. Marines 5th Motor Transport Battalion from Red Bank. MM was not able to be there for the festivities but make sure you check out this informative link and Julie Walton Shaver's excellent collection of pictures (http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.4212077752926.158874.1614491560&type=1) of this momentous occasion. Congratulations and thanks go out to these brave men!
