On October 8, 1918 Corporal Alvin York assumed command of his detachment after three other NCOs fell. He led seven soldiers in a charge on an active machine-gun nest. They killed 25 German soldiers and captiured 132.
France honored York with the Croix de Guerre and Legion of Honor. He has also been nominated for the America’s Congressional Medal of Honor but the award has been held up pending a congressional investigation into his alleged liberal politics.
