RI native receives Navy medals for service in WWII

Raymond Mahon received the Navy Good Conduct Medal among others at Wednesday's ceremony.

A Rhode Island native finally receives recognition for his service during World War II.

NBC 10 cameras were there as a Navy official and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse presented Raymond Mahon with the Navy Good Conduct Medal, and three Bronze Stars, to name a few.

Mahon served during three invasions, in North Africa, Sicily, and Salerno.

In Salerno, he was assigned to the ship carrying President Dwight Eisenhower to the battle site.

Congratulations Mr. Mahon.
