Thumbs up Jan. 30, 1944: Riding a Tank to Victory at Bougainville

MOH Army Staff Sgt. Jesse Ray Drowley

When Army Staff Sgt. Jesse Ray Drowley arrived alone at an American camp on the Solomon Islands with a gaping wound in his chest, a missing eye and a shredded uniform, a junior officer threatened to court-martial him for abandoning his defense post. Instead, Drowley was put on the path to history.
