The state of West Virginia. Hershel W. is a person. Williams, the last Medal of Honor recipient from World War II, will be buried at the US Capitol.
Manchin said that he neverquit giving back. The gold star families were raised money with an annual motorcycle ride.
It has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars. Woody would come after me in a heartbeat.
Manchin noted how Williams would always give him directions and to-do lists.
He will tell me how to vote. How did I make a mistake when I didn't?
Williams was a legend in his native West Virginia because of his heroics at the Battle of Iwo Jima. Williams eliminated a number of Japanese machine gun positions when he was a young Marine. Facing small arms fire, Williams fought for four hours, repeatedly returning to prepare demolition charges and obtain flamethrowers.
The 22-year-old Williams received the medal of honor from the president. The medal of honor is the highest award for military bravery.
The commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps said at the memorial that Williams always objected to the idea that he did it alone. The other men on his team were acknowledged by him.
Woody may be the most genuine person I have ever met. He made you laugh. He could make you feel cared for. His gift was that.
Williams worked for the Veterans Administration for 33 years as a veterans service representative after he left the Marines. The Huntington VA medical center was renamed in his honor and the Navy commissioned a mobile base sea vessel in his name.
He left a mark on the Marines. His legacy will continue if there are Marines.
