Medal of Honor to be awarded to first Sioux soldier


Recommended Posts

This is a true North Dakota hero!


Master Sgt. Woodrow Wilson Keeble, born in 1917 in Waubay on the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Reservation, will be the first Sioux soldier to receive the Medal of Honor when the White House gives him the posthumous honor in a ceremony planned for March 3. Keeble risked his life to save fellow soldiers in the Korean War.

This man died in 1982. He earned the Medal of Honor for service in Korea, however he also served our country in WWII.

He was a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 4324 - Wahpeton. His family will accept the honor.

Here is the Wikipedia article about this outstanding man.

War veterans amaze me. What they have done to sacrifice themselves for the good of the world will always keep us in debt to them.
