A Dream fulfilled: Brother honors MOH Recipient
Pfc Emory L. Bennett with heroic bronze memorial
"In the early hours of June 24, 1951, "two enemy battalions launched a ferocious banzai charge up the ridge line to dislodge the company.... The enemy pressed the assault with fanatical determination. Although wounded, Bennett maintained his I-man defense and, upon orders to move back, Pfc. Bennett voluntarily remained to provide covering fire for the withdrawing elements.... (He) continued to sweep the charging foe with devastating fire until mortally wounded. His willing self-sacrifice and intrepid actions saved the position from being overrun and enabled the company to effect an orderly withdrawal."For these actions, Pfc Emory L. Bennett was posthumously presented the Medal of Honor on February 1, 1952. CLICK HERE to read the complete MOH citation.
