Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A World War Two veteran was honored in a special ceremony at the Embarcadero this Veteran's Day. 

Congresswoman Susan Davis presented Herman Cardoza with a Bronze Stat and the Army of Occupation Medal. Cardoza fought in the U.S. Army in the Pacific at Iwo Jima where he earned his Combat Infantryman's Badge, which also entitled him to the awards presented Wednesday. 

Cardoza contacted Davis' office for assistance in receiving his medals. Her office then worked with the Army to fulfill Cardoza's request.
