David Ephraim Hayden
Birth: Oct. 2, 1897
Death: Mar. 18, 1974

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Hayden served as a Hospital Apprentice First Class, United States Navy, serving with the 2d Battalion, 6th Regiment, United States Marine Corps. He was awarded his medal for service at Thiaucourt, France, on September 15, 1918, during World War I. His ciatation reads-For gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. During the advance, when Cpl. Creed was mortally wounded while crossing an open field swept by machinegun fire, Hayden unhesitatingly ran to his assistance and, finding him so severely wounded as to require immediate attention, disregarded his own personal safety to dress the wound under intense machinegun fire, and then carried the wounded man back to a place of safety.
