Elkhart man received military honor


An Elkhart Man is celebrating 30 years of service in the military.

Saturday family and friends gathered with Colonel Ray Plagens for his Legion of Merit Ceremony.

Plagens served in the U.S. Army

His specialty was in ammunition and nuclear weapons.

He says he's grateful for his time in the service.

"Thirty years of anything is a long time but the friendship that I've earned and I've got life-long friends that I'll always be able to count on and just doing something noble like serving in the military is something that I hold near and dear. It's part of my values," says Plagens.

Plagens also recognized those who continue to serve in our military.
