The News Gazette is a main stay in the local press for central Illinois. Today on the front page they featured one of their own, Charles ‘Chick’ Bruns. Chick worked at the News Gazette for 39 years after his service in World War II.
The article is a prelude to the upcoming ceremony to be held honoring Chick with the French Legion of Honor award to be presented by Vincent Floreani, Consul General of France / Chicago. This award ceremony is open to the public and will be held at 1:00pm February 27th, 2015 at the VFW 5520 Hall in Champaign, IL.
Along with the article, a nice video featuring chick and a synopsis of his WWII Service.
