Medal of Honor Monday: Joe Gandara


"His detachment came under devastating enemy fire from a strong German force, pinning the men to the ground for a period of four hours.  Gandara advanced voluntarily and alone toward the enemy position and destroyed three hostile machine-guns before he was fatally wounded."

From Pvt. Gandara's Medal of Honor citation, awarded on March 18, 2014.

Thank you for your service and may you be at peace,
Brian
