More about ‘Woody’ . . .

Hershel ‘Woody’ Williams was born on a dairy farm in 1923 in Quiet Dell, West Virginia. He enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the Battle of Iwo Jima with the 21st Marines, 3d Marine Division. During the battle, Mr. Williams displayed “valiant devotion to duty” and service above self as he “enabled his company to reach its objective”. For his actions and heroism, President Harry S. Truman presented the Medal of Honor to him in a White House ceremony on October 5th, 1945. Williams is the sole surviving Marine from WWII, to wear the Medal of Honor.
