Corporal Alvin C. York, MOH

I had no idea! And I really liked the guy...thx, Bayou Ren Man for the superb post!

"After his platoon had suffered heavy casualties and 3 other noncommissioned officers had become casualties, Cpl. York assumed command. Fearlessly leading 7 men, he charged with great daring a machinegun nest which was pouring deadly and incessant fire upon his platoon. In this heroic feat the machinegun nest was taken, together with 4 officers and 128 men and several guns."
I think it's time to add that little tidbit to my calendar so we can manage an annual viewing of the movie and tip of the uisge bottle.
