PFC William Bernard Baugh
Birth: Jul. 7, 1930
Lincoln County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Nov. 29, 1950, South Korea

Korean War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Baugh served as a Private First Class, United States Marine Corps, Company G, 3d Battalion, 1st Marine, 1st Marine Division (Rein.). He was awarded his medal posthumously for service along a road leading from Koto-ri to Hagaru-ri, Korea, on November 29, 1950. His citation reads-For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a member of an antitank assault squad attached to Company G, during a nighttime enemy attack against a motorized column. Acting instantly when a hostile handgrenade landed in his truck as he and his squad prepared to alight and assist in the repulse of an enemy force delivering intense automatic-weapons and grenade fire from deeply entrenched and well-concealed roadside positions, Pfc. Baugh quickly shouted a warning to the other men in the vehicle and, unmindful of his personal safety, hurled himself upon the deadly missile, thereby saving his comrades from serious injury or possible death. Sustaining severe wounds from which he died a short time afterward, Pfc. Baugh, by his superb courage and valiant spirit of self-sacrifice, upheld the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country. (bio by: K)
