Greenwood Man Honored for Lifetime of Achievements, Including Service in WWII
A local man has been recognized with one of the state of Indiana’s highest honors.
According to the Daily Journal, Greenwood-native Paul Trotten received the “Sagamore of the Wabash” award last month, recognizing a lifetime worth of achievements, which include years of dedicated service to the community, as well as fighting in World War II.
The Sagamore of the Wabash award is one of the state’s highest honors, according to the report, and has been awarded to presidents, politicians, astronauts and ambassadors over the years.
After the war, the Daily Journal said Totten became well known in Greenwood as a businessman, and also a leader in the community, serving on city and county boards and spending nearly 30 years in the Greenwood Rotary Club.
He’s currently working with Warriors Hope, a veteran peer support group, to help bring a war memorial monument to Greenwood’s Freedom Park, the paper said.
