WCSC News shared this touching story of a community coming together to honor a WW2 hero. Staley Johnson Sr. is a 100-year-old WW2 Veteran. During his time of service, Johnson was known for his bravery and strength. He sustained injuries so severe that he was not expected to survive. He did, however, and returned to the front lines shortly after.

Today, this hero is fighting another battle. With stage 4 pancreatic cancer, the support of friends and family can mean the world. Recently, his North Carolina Community took a moment to show him both support and respect for what he has given. At a ceremony this past Sunday, North Carolina Congressman Ted Budd presented a proclamation and a flag to Johnson for his service. See full story.
