CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. (AP) A soldier from far northern Wisconsin will become the first member of the state's Army National Guard to receive a Silver Star Medal. Other soldiers from Wisconsin have received the award, but 1st Sgt. Gregory Fulton of Arbor Vitae is the first member of the National Guard to earn it.
Fulton will receive his medal during a formal ceremony Friday at Volk Field in Camp Douglas. He's being honored for his actions in 2009 when he helped members of the Afghan National Army clear a building filled with insurgents.
The Silver Star Medal is the third-highest military decoration for valor that can be awarded to a member of the U.S military. It's awarded for gallantry in action against an enemy of the U.S.

It's a tight fit for lots of workers at Organic Valley in La Farge, two weeks after a fire destroyed part of the company headquarters.
Mission executive Theresa Marquez says the organic food producer has found working places for many of the 400 employees displaced by the May 14th fire, while more than 100 workers still do not have new spots to work. Marquez tells the Wisconsin Farm Report that predictions of having the Organic Valley headquarters rebuilt by September are unrealistic. It could take a year to rebuild after what Marquez says was the biggest fire ever recorded in Vernon County.
