Hiroshi Miyamura M O H Korea

Hiroshi H. "Hershey" Miyamura (born October 6, 1925) is an American retired United States Army soldier and recipient of the Medal of Honor for actions in the Korean War. While he was held as a prisoner of war, the award was classified as top secret.

He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on April 24–25, 1951, south of the Imjin River near Taejon-ni (Daejeon-ni) in Yeoncheon County, Korea, while serving as a corporal in the 2nd Battalion, 7th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. During a night attack by the Chinese, he saw that his squad could not hold much longer, so he ordered his men to retreat. He remained behind to cover their withdrawal.

Miyamura was captured immediately after the actions that led to his award. The POWs were forced to march 300 miles (480 km) over five weeks with little food.

Sent him 2 photos on 13 Mar and got them back signed on 24 Mar.
