On #WarriorWednesday, we recognize former U.S. Ambassador to South Korea and U.S. Navy ADM (Ret.) Harry B. Harris Jr.

Harris has logged 4,400 flight hours, including more than 400 combat hours, in maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft — he is the first Navy flyer from this community to achieve a 4-star rank.

His personal decorations include the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, Distinguished Service Medal (two awards), Defense Superior Service Medal (three awards), Legion of Merit (three awards), the Bronze Star (two awards), the Air Medal (one strike/flight), and the State Department’s Distinguished Honor Award. He was awarded the Tong-il medal by the Republic of Korea in 2014 and the Pingat Jasa Gemilang (Tentera) by the Republic of Singapore in 2017.

Thank you for your service, Admiral Harris! Today, we salute you!
