The Historical Commission and Community Development Dept. are looking for descendants of three Metal of Honor recipients:
1. Lt. Raymond Ovila Beaudoin killed in action in World War II at the age of 26. He was born in Holyoke in 1918 and lived on South Summer St.
2. His neighbor and Metal of Honor recipient, Sgt. Joseph Muller who also lived on South Summer St. was killed in action in World War II.
3. Earlier during World War I, Chief Boatswain's Mate John MacKenzie received the Metal of Honor.
There is a possible monument in the works for them.
