U.S. Border Patrol Agent David Linson was honored Nov. 30 at the Port Angeles Border Patrol Station for assisting an elderly Sequim man who had wandered away from his home west of the city.
Linson noticed the man walking along U.S. Highway 101 just after midnight on Nov. 7. He asked the man, who appeared confused, if he needed help.
Linson contacted the Clallam County Sheriff's Office and was told the man had a history of dementia and recently walked away from his residence.
He drove the man home and waited until sheriff's deputies arrived.
