Beauford T. Anderson
July 6, 1922 – November 7, 1996

He single-handedly held off a flanking force by alternately firing his carbine and throwing activated mortar shells. Although seriously wounded by shrapnel during the action, he refused medical evacuation until he had reported the situation to his commander. For these actions, Anderson was awarded the Medal of Honor the next year, on June 27, 1946.
Nicky Daniel Bacon
November 25, 1945 – July 17, 2010

Bacon and his unit came under fire from enemy positions. While Bacon destroyed these positions with hand grenades, his platoon leader was wounded in open ground. Assuming command, Bacon led the platoon in destroying still more enemy emplacements. He was personally credited with killing at least 4 enemy soldiers and destroying an antitank gun.
