March 30 John Bobo Medal of Honor

John Bobo earned the Medal of Honor posthumously on this day in Vietnam, when he rallied Marines in the face of an overwhelming North Vietnamese attack on this battalion. Bobo encouraged Marines, moving in the open, then picked up a discarded rocket launcher and formed a team that took out enemy machine gun nests.

He was wounded and his leg was blown off, but he fashion a tourniquet from a machine gun belt and shoved his legs into the earth to stop the bleeding, and then covered the withdrawal of his Marines.

Just incredible leadership and heroics. Read his Medal of Honor citation.
