Three Siouxland military veterans are being honored for their service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars.

Iowa Senator Joni Ernst visited Sioux City on Tuesday morning to recognize the veterans and personally thank them for their service.

In a ceremony this morning at the Federal Courthouse in Sioux City, Ernst presented Richard Skuya, Antonio Diaz Lopez, and Les Levin with the medals they earned while serving their country.

Ernst individually recognized each veteran, allowing them to share stories of their service.

“When we’re presenting these awards and honors to these veterans it’s not coming from Senator Joni Ernst, it’s not coming from Lt. [Col.] Joni Ernst, it’s coming from a grateful nation on behalf of the United States Government and these medals are long overdue. I’m glad to present them today,” says Ernst.
