Lewis R. Hall
Birth: Mar. 2, 1895
Death: Jan. 10, 1943

World War II Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Technician Fifth Grade, United States Army, Company M, 35th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division. He was awarded his medal posthumously for service at Mount Austen, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, on January 10, 1943. His citation reads-For gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty. As leader of a machinegun squad charged with the protection of other battalion units, his group was attacked by a superior number of Japanese, his gunner killed, his assistant gunner wounded, and an adjoining guncrew put out of action. Ordered to withdraw from his hazardous position, he refused to retire but rushed forward to the idle gun and with the aid of another soldier who joined him and held up the machinegun by the tripod to increase its field of action he opened fire and inflicted heavy casualties upon the enemy. While so engaged both these gallant soldiers were killed, but their sturdy defense was a decisive factor in the following success of the attacking battalion.  (bio by: K)
