Marine veteran Hershel "Woody" Williams of Ona is among a dozen World War II Medal of Honor winners whose likeness will appear in a new memorial stamp series issued by the U.S. Postal Service.
According to postal officials, the 90-year-old Williams is among 12 Medal of Honor recipients whose photograph is included with the package of special stamps. At the time of their design, they were the last 12 Medal of Honor recipients from World War II still living. Three of the 12 have since died.
