NEWS RELEASE ISSUED FEBRUARY 22, 2014 BY THE OFFICE OF U.S. SENATOR JERRY MORAN

MANHATTAN, KAN. – Today, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) released the following statement after the White House’s announcement that two Army veterans – First Lieutenant Donald K. Schwab and Sergeant Jack Weinstein – will posthumously receive the Medal of Honor on March 18, 2014. This news came after an extensive review of their valorous actions that initially awarded them the nation’s second highest decoration, the Distinguished Service Cross.

“Much time has passed, but I’m happy to see that First Lieutenant Donald K. Schwab and Sergeant Jack Weinstein received Presidential attention for their courageous actions while serving in World War II and the Korean War,” Sen. Moran said. “They are both more than deserving of this distinguished honor and will finally receive the recognition they deserve.”

First Lieutenant Donald K. Schwab served in World War II; Sergeant Jack Weinstein served in the Korean War. Both Schwab and Weinstein’s families currently reside in Kansas.
