Ora Graves
Birth: Jul. 26, 1896
Death: Sep. 28, 1961

US Navy seaman awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for extraordinary heroism on 23 July 1917, while on board the USS Pittsburgh. A 3-inch saluting charge exploded and he was blown to the deck, but soon recovered only to find burning waste on the deck, which he put out, knowing there was more powder there that might explode.
