Harold William Bauer and Edward C. Allworth
When it comes to patriotism Bauer shows how we can all help and contribute to our nation. While he Volunteered aa a pilot of a fighter plane in defense of our positions on Guadalcanal, Lt. Col. Bauer participated in 2 air battles against enemy bombers and fighters outnumbering our force more than 2 to 1, boldly engaged the enemy and destroyed 1 Japanese bomber in the engagement of 28 September and shot down 4 enemy fighter planes in flames on 3 October, leaving a fifth smoking badly. With contributing to his country he has proved a true hero as one.

Edward graduated from the Oregon Agricultural College in 1916, and soon after joined the Army and was assigned to the 60th Regiment of the 5th Division.
With his self-“Undaunted by the formidable opposition and with valor above and beyond the call of duty, His intrepid fighting spirit and distinctive ability as a leader and an airman, exemplified in his splendid record of combat achievement, were vital factors in the successful operations in the South Pacific Area.” With this Bauer had shown he will put others before him and fight above the call of duty finishing his job and perfecting others.
Allworth showed Valor when he plunged into the Meuse River under heavy fire, inspiring his men to do the same. This lead to the successful advance of his troop.

During the war at Clery-le-Petit, France, on 5 November 1918, while Allworth's company was crossing the Meuse River and canal at a bridgehead opposite Clery-le-Petit, the bridge over the canal was destroyed by shell fire and his command was separated, he mounted the canal bank and called for his men to follow.

Bauer had also showed great sacrifice when he took on a squadron of Japanese planes by himself, "although alone and his fuel supply nearly exhausted, fought his plane so brilliantly that 4 of Japaneses planes were destroyed before he was forced down by lack of fuel." Bauer knew that he put his life in danger and continued to fight for his country. With the lack of fuel he could have been easily shoot down and yet he stayed brilliant and sacrificed his safety for others.
