Corp Louis James Hauge, Jr
Birth: Dec. 12, 1924
Ada
Norman County
Minnesota, USA
Death: May 14, 1945
Okinawa, Japan

World War II Congressional Medal of Honor recipient. Served as a Corporal in Company C, 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Division in the invasion at Southern Okinawa. In the Ryukyu Chain on May 14, 1945, he was a leader of a machine gun squad engaged in an assault against a heavily fortified Japanese hill. That evening his Company's left flank was pinned down by a barrage of mortar and machine gun fire. Seeing the two guns responsible for the damage, he rushed across an open area, heaving hand grenades as he ran. Wounded before he reached the first gun, he continued his one-man assault and destroyed the position. Without stopping, he pushed forward attacking the second gun with grenades and demolished it. He was last seen falling from the deadly fire of the Japanese snipers. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor on June 14, 1946 and it is accredited to the state of Minnesota. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
