Americans, Briton who thwarted attack get France’s top honor

Author: wink news

PARIS (AP) – French President Francois Hollande says three Americans and a Briton who tackled an attacker on a high-speed train headed to Paris last Friday have given “a lesson in courage, in will, and thus in hope.”

The four were presented today with the Legion of Honor, Frances highest honor.

Hollande says because of the actions by 23-year-old U.S. Airman Spencer Stone and the three other men, “veritable carnage” was avoided.
