Medal of Honor, 1943

On a mission to Bremen, Germany, radio operator Forrest Vosler was hit twice by 20mm shrapnel after taking the place of the seriously wounded tail gunner. Despite his injuries, he managed to tend to the wounded tail gunner, repair the damaged radio equipment and send off distress signals before the aircraft ditched into the sea.
