Congress has honored Baltimorean Morris Honick for his World War II service and subsequent work as a military historian with the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, or SHAPE.

Honick, a Baltimore City College graduate, was aboard a trans-Atlantic convoy during World War II that lost 22 of 62 ships to U-boats but reached Liverpool, "maintaining the Atlantic Alliance," according to Rep. Jay Inslee of Washington, who obtained the citation for Honick last month.

Honick stayed in the military and became an historian, and, most recently was co-author of "NATO 1948: The Birth of the Trans-Atlantic Alliance."

"Mr. Honick, through his writing, helped make sure that history would not be forgotten, having written extensively on the history of SHAPE and on NATO-SHAPE affairs," Inslee said.
