I don't know why the **** John Basilone isn't on there. ************ killed a few hundred Japs' on Guadalcanal, almost got overrun, picked up his Water-Jacketed Browning 1919 without his mitt, got 3rd degree burns on his hands, and then killed a couple hundred more gooks, surviving the campaign and getting the medal of honor.

Yeah, I know. It's quite the shame though, had just gotten married and everything. I also got the the numbers wrong; he decimated a division of 3,000.

How about Pfc. Jack Hanson. I bet you dont even know who that is. He makes Basilone look like a sissy. Pfc. Hanson, a machine gunner with the 1st Platoon, Company F, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty in action against an armed enemy of the United Nations. The company, in defensive positions on two strategic hills separated by a wide saddle, was ruthlessly attacked at approximately 0300 hours, the brunt of which centered on the approach to the divide within range of Pfc. Hanson's machine gun. In the initial phase of the action, 4 riflemen were wounded and evacuated and the numerically superior enemy, advancing under cover of darkness, infiltrated and posed an imminent threat to the security of the command post and weapons platoon. Upon orders to move to key terrain above and to the right of Pfc. Hanson's position, he voluntarily remained to provide protective fire for the withdrawal. Subsequent to the retiring elements fighting a rearguard action to the new location, it was learned that Pfc. Hanson's assistant gunner and 3 riflemen had been wounded and had crawled to safety, and that he was maintaining a lone-man defense. After the 1st Platoon reorganized, counterattacked, and resecured its original positions at approximately 0530 hours, Pfc. Hanson's body was found lying in front of his emplacement, his machine gun ammunition expended, his empty pistol in his right hand, and a machete with blood on the blade in his left hand, and approximately 22 enemy dead lay in the wake of his action. He was awarded the MOH and had Barracks on Sandhill Ft. Benning named after him.
