David Bellavia to Receive Medal of Honor Tomorrow

Batavia resident David Bellavia is in the nation's capitol, where tomorrow he will be given the Medal of Honor for his service in Iraq. Bellavia is being honored for clearing a house of insurgents in Fallujah. He killed four, including one in hand-to-hand combat. He will become the first living Iraq veteran to receive the honor.

NewsRadio WHAM1180's Bob Lonsberry says the government has planned a busy agenda for Bellavia and his family.

The ceremony is set for tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. in the East Room of the White House.
