Johannes Seigfried Anderson
Birth: Jul. 20, 1887, Finland
Death: Apr. 13, 1950
Illinois, USA

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the United States Army during World War I as a First Sergeant in Company B, 132nd Infantry, 33rd Infantry Division. He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery at Consenvoye, France, on October 8, 1918. His citation reads "While his company was being held up by intense artillery and machinegun fire, 1st Sgt. Anderson, without aid, voluntarily left the company and worked his way to the rear of the nest that was offering the most stubborn resistance. His advance was made through an open area and under constant hostile fire, but the mission was successfully accomplished, and he not only silenced the gun and captured it, but also brought back with him 23 prisoners". His Medal was awarded to him in 1919. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
