Ennio John Viglianti on receiving the Bronze Star with the “V” for valor device for his service in the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944 during World War II. An administrative error delayed the honor for almost seven decades. Viglianti, 97, of Westfield, was presented with the medal during a ceremony at American Legion Post 209 in Scotch Plains on June 24.
