A Michigan veteran, who has also been awarded the Medal of Honor, is getting another honor Saturday evening.

Jim McCloughan will be honored by the Peaceful Warriors Foundation for his military service during Vietnam.

News 10 caught up with McCloughan on Friday ahead of the weekend ceremony.

"When someone like myself receives an award like this, every warrior is receiving it because I'm just one of many, many Vietnam veterans who risked their life and went to war to preserve their freedoms and liberties here," he said.

The event is being held at Dart Auditorium at Lansing Community College from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
