[From Rick Hollis, TNSSAR]

West Virginia SAR members and Compatriots all across America can be proud that one of our fellow Compatriots, Herschel “Woody” Williams will be featured at the Super Bowl tomorrow evening. The NFL will salute 15 recipients of the Medal of Honor, the United States’ most prestigious military decoration, when they participate in the coin toss before the Super Bowl.

World War II veteran Hershel Woodrow “Woody” Williams, who earned the Medal of Honor during the Battle of Iwo Jima, will flip the coin, surrounded by the others being honored. At 94, Williams, of Ona, West Virginia, is the second oldest living recipient of the Medal of Honor and the oldest recipient who fought in the South Pacific. He fought in the Battle of Guadalcanal and in Guam, was honored for his actions as a Marine in the Battle of Iwo Jima. With cover from a rifleman, and armed with a flamethrower, he destroyed several Japanese machine gun pillboxes, which opened a gap in the enemy defenses and allowed US forces to move forward. President Harry Truman presented Williams with the Medal of Honor on the White House lawn on October 4, 1945.

A moment of personal privilege, I was honored in December 2015 to install Woody Williams as a member of SAR during ceremonies coordinated by his sponsor Bob Fish and hosted by Captain James Neal SAR Chapter in Parkersburg, WV. I was also privileged to present Compatriot Williams with the Distinguished Patriotic Leadership Award on behalf of President General Tom Lawrence.

Go online and watch some of Woody’s interviews – he’s 94 and one of the most engaging men I have ever met. He has the vitality of a man half his age. Take a moment and learn about his amazing work through the Hershel Woody Williams Medal of Honor Foundation at hwwmohf.org/index.html. You will be impressed!

Enjoy the game! GO PATRIOTS!

Kind regards, Rick
