Honored Allies Wednesday: James H. Gordon (Australia)

 
"On the night of July 10, 1941, during an attack on "Greenhill," North of Djezzine, Private Gordon's Company came under intense machine gun fire and its advance was held up. Movement even by single individuals became almost impossible, one officer and two men being killed and two men wounded in the effort to advance. The enemy machine gun position, which had brought the two forward platoons to a halt, was fortified and completely covered the area occupied by our forces. Private Gordon, on his own initiative, crept forward over an area swept by machine gun and grenade fire and succeeded in approaching close to the post; he then charged it from the front and killed the four machine gunners with the bayonet. His action completely demoralized the enemy in this sector and the Company advanced and took the position. During the remainder of the action that night and on the following day Private Gordon, who has throughout the operations shown a high degree of courage,fought with equal gallantry."

From Pvt. Gordon's Victoria Cross citation, awarded on October 28, 1941.

Medal of Honor Monday: Robert T. Waugh

 
"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty in action with the enemy.  In the course of an attack upon an enemy-held hill on 11 May, 1st Lt. Waugh personally reconnoitered a heavily mined area before entering it with his platoon.  Directing his men to deliver fire on 6 bunkers guarding this hill, 1st Lt. Waugh advanced alone against them, reached the first bunker, threw phosphorus grenades into it and as the defenders emerged, killed them with a burst from his Tommy Gun.  He repeated this process on the 5 remaining bunkers, killing or capturing the occupants.  On the morning of 14 May, 1st Lt. Waugh ordered his platoon to lay a base of fire on 2 enemy pillboxes located on a knoll which commanded the only trail up the hill.  He then ran to the first pillbox, threw several grenades into it, drove the defenders into the open, and killed them.  The second pillbox was next taken by this intrepid officer by similar methods.  The fearless actions of 1st Lt. Waugh broke the Gustav Line at that point, neutralizing 6 bunkers and 2 pillboxes and he was personally responsible for the death of 30 of the enemy and the capture of 25 others.  He was later killed in action in Itri, Italy, while leading his platoon in an attack."

From 1LT Waugh's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on October 4, 1944.

Honored Allies Wednesday: Donald E. Garland (Ireland)

 
"Flying Officer Garland was the pilot and Sergeant Gray was the observer of the leading aircraft of a formation of five aircraft that attacked a bridge over the Albert Canal which had not been destroyed and was allowing the enemy to advance into Belgium.  All the aircrews of the squadron concerned volunteered for the operation, and, after five crews had been selected by drawing lots, the attack was delivered at low altitude against this vital target.  Orders were issued that this bridge was to be destroyed at all costs.  As had been expected, exceptionally intense machine-gun and anti-aircraft fire were encountered.  Moreover, the bridge area was heavily protected by enemy fighters.  In spite of this, the formation successfully delivered a dive-bombing attack from the lowest practicable altitude.  British fighters in the vicinity reported that the target was obscured by the bombs bursting on it and near it. Only one of the five aircraft concerned returned from this mission.  The pilot of this aircraft reports that besides being subjected to extremely heavy anti-aircraft fire, through which they dived to attack the objective, our aircraft were also attacked by a large number of enemy fighters after they had released their bombs on the target.   Much of the success of this vital operation must be attributed to the formation leader, Flying Officer Garland, and to the coolness and resource of Sergeant Gray, who in most difficult conditions navigated Flying Officer Garland's aircraft in such a manner that the whole formation was able successfully to attack the target in spite of subsequent heavy losses.  Flying Officer Garland and Sergeant Gray did not return."

From Flying Officer Garland's Victoria Cross citation, awarded on June 11, 1940.

Medal of Honor Monday: Wilson D. Watson

 
"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as automatic rifleman serving with the Second Battalion, Ninth Marines, Third Marine Division, during action against enemy Japanese forces on Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, 26 and 27 February 1945.   With his squad abruptly halted by intense fire from enemy fortifications in the high rocky ridges and crags commanding the line of advance, Private Watson boldly rushed one pillbox and fired into the embrasure with his weapon, keeping the enemy pinned down single-handedly until he was in a position to hurl in a grenade and then running to the rear of the emplacement to destroy the retreating Japanese and enable his platoon to take its objective.  Again pinned down at the foot of a small hill, he dauntlessly scaled the jagged incline under fierce mortar and machine-gun barrages and with his assistant automatic rifleman charged the crest of the hill, firing from his hip.  Fighting furiously against Japanese troops attacking with grenades and knee-mortars from the reverse slope, he stood fearlessly erect in his exposed position to cover the hostile entrenchments and held the hill under savage fire for fifteen minutes, killing sixty Japanese before his ammunition was exhausted and his platoon was able to join him.  His courageous initiative and valiant fighting spirit against devastating odds were directly responsible for the continued advance of his platoon and his inspiring leadership throughout this bitterly fought action reflects the highest credit upon Private Watson and the United States Naval Service."
