    The New Jersey Wing Civil Air Patrol recently awarded a replica of the CAP Congressional Gold Medal posthumously to Vivian Nicholson during the CAP Night of Distinction at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. The honor was presented by U.S. Rep. Tom MacArthur. “I’m delighted I could be here to honor Vivian Nicholson and present her family with the highest civilian award that Congress can give,” he said. “It’s a real privilege.” Drs. Philip and James Santiago, sons of Vivian Nicholson, accepted the award on her behalf.
