The medal of honor is a gift of what they did in the war. The medal of honor is the United States of America's highest military honor, awarded for the acts of valor above and beyond the call of duty. The medal is awarded by the President of the U.S. Congress to U.S. military personnel only.
George Mabry
Joe Mann
"He was wounded 4 times. Taken to a covered position, he insisted on returning to a forward position to stand guard during the night. on the following morning, the enemy launched a concerted attack and advanced to a few yards of the position, throwing hand grenades as they approached. One of these landed within a few feet of PFC. Mann. Unable to raise hes arms, which were bandaged to his body, he yelled "Grenade " and threw his body over the grenade as it exploded. His outstanding gallantry above and beyond the call of duty and his magnificent conduct were a everlasting inspiration to his comrades for whom he gave his life."
