Henry Singer Awarded French Legion Of Honor

Henry Singer has been named Chevalier of the Legion of Honor, France’s highest distinction. The award ceremony honoring Americans for their “personal contributions towards France’s liberation” in World War II was presided over by France’s Consul-General on April 15 at the French Embassy in Washington, D.C. Singer served in the Army Infantry in France, arriving there in January 1945.

France has sought to honor the thousands of men and women who served in the U.S. armed forces there during the war. Singer was among a small group of veterans who gathered at the Embassy, where the Consul-General expressed France’s deepest gratitude to the men and women who helped free their country from German occupation. Singer accepted the prestigious honor on behalf of all American veterans who fought in France, most of whom have passed on or are in poor health. Joining him at the ceremony were his wife, Helene; children Fred, Andrew and Julie; and son-in-law Phil Scanlan, who recently served as Australia’s Consul-General in New York.

Singer is Chairman of Singer Equipment Co., Elverson, Pa., and a former president of FEDA.
