HAPPAUGE — Congressman Steve Israel (D-Huntington) presented veteran William Grimaldi with a Bronze Star for his unselfish bravery in World War II.

The recipient never mentioned the incident, but when the congressman heard about it, Israel took the initiative to ensure that Grimaldi received the recognition he was due.
