Schumer pushes Pentagon on NY WWI hero's behalf

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) -- Sen. Charles Schumer has met with a top-ranking Pentagon official in an effort to get a Medal of Honor awarded to a World War I hero from Albany.
  
The New York Democrat says he met Tuesday with the undersecretary of defense who oversees decisions regarding the nation's highest military decoration for bravery in combat.
  
Schumer urged the official to recommend that Sgt. Henry Johnson receive a Medal of Honor for his heroics during a German attack in France in 1918. Johnson was serving in the all-black 369th Infantry Regiment when he killed or wounded several enemy soldiers while saving a comrade from being captured.
  
In May, U.S. Army Secretary John McHugh approved Schumer's request to grant Johnson a Medal of Honor. Johnson's case will be considered by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel for approval.
