Medal of Honor Monday: Alfred B. Nietzel

"When an enemy assault threatened to overrun his unit's position, Nietzel selflessly covered for the retreating members of his squad, expending all his ammunition and holding his post until he was killed by an enemy hand grenade." 

From Sgt. Nietzel's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on March 18, 2014.
Delayed but finally acknowledged,
