Mantuck, also a retired Dearborn firefighter, told the audience he was honored to receive the award and that Veterans Day “is not the day to honor one veteran, but all veterans.” Mayor John O’Reilly Jr. (left), Council Chaplain Thomas Houle and DAWVC Commander Nancy Dlugokenski are seated behind Mantuck.
