Residence: Prairie Village

Branch: Army 42nd Rainbow Infantry Division

Rank: Corporal

Duty: Instrument corporal

Memory: Place myself about 20 yards in front of three 155 mm howitzer cannons, face them and with my instruments align the cannons to fire on and destroy predesignated enemy targets. At each of the several locations, I was in the open, unarmed, carrying only my instruments, exposed to enemy fire, risking my life without hesitation. Awarded Bronze Star.
