Mark Moogalian and five other passengers overpowered the suspect, Moroccan national Ayoub El-Khazzani.
Mr Moogalian was shot in the neck during the struggle on the high-speed train from Amsterdam to Paris.
The Legion d’honneur was given by President Francois Hollande at the Elysee Palace.

Seeing the struggle, Mr Moogalian tried to intervene but was hit by a bullet.
