Was awarded the medal of honor for conspicuous gallery and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on October 28 , 1944 near St.die France.When fighting in a lone assault on a force of german troops. Sgt. Adams killed 9 German troops , eliminated 3 enemy machine gunners and vanquished a specialized force which was armed with automatic weapons and grenade launchers.
The reason i chose this man was because even though an artillery shell knocked out his gun and wounded his right thigh he kept fighting. He grabbed a bazooka and made the tanks that were attacking him move into a wooded area. then he fixed a tank and tryed to tell the people in the tanks where the enemy tanks were, but they couldn't hear him so he climbed up to the aforementioned exposed area and told 2 tanks where to shoot.
Robert L. Howard mission was to rescue a american soldier in enemy controlled area in the republic of Vietnam. During the initial engagement Lt.Robert was wounded and his gun was destroyed in a grenade explosion. Although he was unable to walk,and weaponless,
he crawled through heavy fire and retrieved his leader.
Courage:
the literal meaning of courage is the ability to do something that frightens one. to me that means that even though your scared or in pain you are still brave and do whatever it is to help your fellow soldiers.
