It’s Preferred Company with Joel Markel, president and founder of Preferred Home Health Care and Nursing Services, Fran Holinda and guest Muriel Smith. Muriel is a member of the Monmouth County Historical Commission. She is here to share a story getting a Congressional Medal of Honor from a college in Pennsylvania and back to Freehold, the home of the Civil War veteran, who received it and is buried in St. Rose Cemetery. Muriel got the Medal out of the college and back to Fort Knox (where Army medals are kept). While Muriel’s efforts got the Medal to Fort Knox, she doesn’t know whether Fort Knox would have released it to Freehold. Listen to Preferred Company wherever you go on your smartphone or tablet.
