World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the United States Army during World War I as a Sergeant in Company L, 117th Infantry, 30th Division. He was awarded the CMOH for his bravery near Pochaux, France, on October 7, 1918. His citation reads "Undeterred by seeing several comrads killed in atempting to put a hostile machinegun nest out of action, Sgt. Talley attacked the position single handed. Armed only with a rifle, he rushed the nest in the face of intense enemy fire, killed or wounded at least 6 of the crew, and silenced the gun. When the enemy attempted to bring forward another gun and ammunition he drove them back by effective fire from his rifle".
