Wilburn Ross, who received Medal of Honor for heroism in WWII, dies at 94



"Sgt. Ross had few trappings of his wartime heroism, except for a commemorative Medal of Honor license plate that other motorists occasionally noticed in traffic.

“Sometimes people salute me,” he said."

What a man...yes !! and he was a hardened soldierr and did fight in Italy before where combat conditions where similar to those he met when he actes so bravely. Hilly but less woods, vicious, with lots of artillery and mortar and infantry combat, attacks and counterattacks(in what the German were very very good)
