Congressman Steve Womack of Arkansas presents a Flag Ceremony Certificate to Matt Russell at the Camp Jack facility Thursday morning during the National Medal Of Honor Day in honoring Harrison’s World War II hero Jack Williams, a recipient of the Medal of Honor for his valor during the Battle of Iwo Jima. Williams served as a Medic and saved many lives but lost his own.
In coordination with the tribute, Womack had a flag fly over the U.S. Capital on Thursday morning and it will be presented to the Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center “Camp Jack”, a newly opened Harrison non-profit organization committed to serving local veterans with respect, honor, and compassion, later this month. Russell is the President for the Jack Williams Veterans Resource Center – “Camp Jack”.
