October 3, 1945 Pharmacist’s Mate Second Class Wahlen was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Harry S. Truman. George was discharged from the U.S. Navy on December 20, 1945. He married Melba Holley on August 16, 1946. He later served in the U.S. Army for 20 years, including time in Korea and Vietnam.
