Army Cpl. Gordon Hearne, 87, is formally thanked for his service by the consul general in L.A. on behalf of King Albert II.
On Dec. 16, 1944, 21-year-old Army Cpl. Gordon Hearne found himself in an hours-long gun battle with German soldiers in the Belgium countryside — one of countless such stories that marked the beginning of the Battle of the Bulge, Germany's last major offensive and a turning point in World War II.
