OKGIT member and Honorary French Consul for Oklahoma Grant Moak presents WWII vet with Medal of Chevalier
Though focused on business, investment and education, members of the Oklahoma Governor’s International Team come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. Assistant Attorney General Grant Moak is one of those individuals, who in addition to his work for the attorney general’s office, also serves as the French Republic’s Honorary Consul in Oklahoma.
Moak recently presented that country’s highest decoration, the Medal of Chevalier (Knight) of the French National Order of the Legion of Honor, to WWII veteran and Oklahoma City resident Major General Stanley Newman (ret.). Newman received the honor for his service as a P-51 pilot in 51 combat missions in the European theater.
