Secretary of State officials recently presented retired Lt. Col. Charles Kettles with the 8th Medal of Honor license plate ever issued in Michigan.

Kettles, of Ypsilanti, was given the Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award for valor in action, at the White House in July for his bravery as a helicopter pilot in Vietnam.

Lt. Col. Kettles was very humble about being awarded the Medal and thanked the department for extending an invitation to him to receive the commemorative license plate.
