On Tuesday, April 8, Rep. Tallman and members of the House welcomed students from The Scranton School For Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children. Standing beside him is Auden Ledden from New Oxford.
Rep. Tallman recently presented a House citation to New Oxford resident, 1st Sgt. John L. Moore Jr., a Korean War veteran who served his country for 40 years. Three months after being sent to South Korea in 1950, Moore and four of his fellow soldiers were captured by North Korean forces.
Moore escaped after 18 days in captivity and was picked up by a British patrol, eventually returning to active duty in January 1951. He was awarded the Combat Infantryman Badge, Bronze Star and Purple
