Braley will honor retired Army Reserve Sgt. Major Michael Matson 

Washington, DC – On Thursday, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will travel to Davenport’s Central High School to present the Legion of Merit award to retired Army Reserve Sgt. Major Michael Matson of Davenport.

Matson is being presented with the Legion of Merit award for exceptionally meritorious service and outstanding leadership throughout his 21-year career in the military.  The Legion of Merit is among the most distinguished US military decorations, and is one of only two US military decorations to be worn on the neck (the other is the Medal of Honor).  Braley worked with the Army to help push through the Legion of Merit honor for Matson.
