WASHINGTON - U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D-N.J., 8th) this week honored WWII combat veterans Wesley Stainton of Little Falls and Norman Reisman of Bloomfield by presenting them with medals they had earned while serving our nation, yet had not received following their discharge from the armed services.
 "As a veteran myself, one of the best parts of my job is helping those who served our nation  receive the medals they earned with their distinguished service." stated Pascrell, a veteran of the U.S. Army and Army Reserve.  "Wesley Stainton is a distinguished American who waited far too long to receive his Bronze Star and other medals, and I am proud that our office was able to present it to him in the presence of his loved ones."
