Henry G. Costin
Birth: Jun. 15, 1898
Baltimore City, USA
Death: Oct. 8, 1918

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the United States Army during World War I as a Private in Company H, 115th Infantry, 29th Division. He was awarded CMOH for his bravery near Bois-de-Consenvoye, France on October 8, 1918. His citation reads "When the advance of his platoon had been held up by machine-gun fire and a request was made for an automatic rifle team to charge the nest, Pvt Costin was the first to volunteer. Advancing with his team, under terrific fire from the enemy artillery, machine guns, and trench mortors, he continued after all his comrades had become casualties and he himself had been seriously wounded. He operated his rifle until he collapsed. His act resulted in the capture of about 100 prisoners and several machine guns. He succumbed to the effects of his wounds shortly after the accomplishment of his heroic deed". His Medal was posthumously presented to his family in 1919. (bio by: Don Morfe)
