Harold Arthur Furlong
Birth: Aug. 1, 1895
Death: Jul. 27, 1987

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Furlong served as a First Lieutenant, United States Army, 353d Infantry, 89th Division. He was awarded his medal for service Near Bantheville, France, on November 1, 1918. His citation reads-Immediately after the opening of the attack in the Bois-de-Bantheville, when his company was held up by severe machinegun fire from the front, which killed his company commander and several soldiers, 1st. Lt. Furlong moved out in advance of the line with great courage and coolness, crossing an open space several hundred yards wide. Taking up a position behind the line of the machineguns, he closed in on them, one at a time, killing a number of the enemy with his rifle, putting 4 machinegun nests out of action, and driving 20 German prisoners into our lines.  (bio by: K)
