Wednesday’s Hero

This Weeks Post Was Suggested By Michael

U.S. Army

This week Wednesday Hero is honoring eight Men who were awarded the Medal Of Honor during the Battle of Peleliu, a bloody fight that took place between September – November of 1944 in which nearly 2,000 Marines and Soldiers were killed and another 8,000+ were wounded or went missing. The eight MOH recipients were:

Corporal Lewis K. Bausell, 1st Battalion 5th Marines
Private First Class Arthur J. Jackson, 3rd Battalion 7th Marines
Private First Class Richard E. Kraus, 8th Amphibian Tractor Battalion
Private First Class John D. New, 2nd Battalion 7th Marines
Private First Class Wesley Phelps, 3rd Battalion 7th Marines
Captain Everett P. Pope, USMC, 1st Battalion 1st Marines
Private First Class Charles H. Roan, 2nd Battalion 7th Marines
First Lieutenant Carlton R. Rouh, 1st Battalion 5th Marines

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them Hero.
