BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The Bath Town Council unanimously approved Berkeley Springs resident Joseph Forney as the next recipient of the Cornerstone of the Community award.

At Tuesday night's meeting, Mayor Susan Webster said Forney, 91, is a veteran from the community that served his country during World War II, was a paratrooper and part of the D-Day invasion and served in Korea, where "he was also wounded twice," Webster said.

Webster said, "I hold him up as an exceptional citizen of the Town of Bath."

Webster said she wants to make the presentation in the fall.
