Honors for D-Day paratrooper

French Consul General Romain Serman awarded Pleasanton veteran paratrooper Robert L. Vannatter with the French Legion of Honor medal June 3 for his part in the liberation of France during World War II.

Vannatter was also given a commendation from Pleasanton at the City Council meeting Tuesday night. After Councilman Jerry Thorne gave an introduction detailing his background and his three major European battles, Vannatter regaled the crowd with more anecdotes, to receive a second standing ovation from those in the council chamber.
