Alfred Leonard Wilson
Birth: Sep. 18, 1918
Fayette County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Nov. 8, 1944
Departement de la Moselle
Lorraine, France

World War II Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He was a Technician Grade Five in the United States Army in the Medical Detachment, 328th Infantry, 26th Infantry Division. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on November 8, 1944 near Bezange la Petite, France. He was killed in action. His citation in part reads "In spite of great pain and loss of blood, he continued to administer first aid until he was too weak to stand. Crawling from one patient to another, he continued his work until excessive loss of blood prevented him from moving. He then verbally directed unskilled enlisted men in continuing the first aid for the wounded. Still refusing assistance himself, he remained to instruct others in dressing the wounds of his comrades until he was unable to speak above a whisper and finally lapsed into unconsciusness. The efects of his injury later caused his death. By steadfastly remaining at the scene without regard for his own safety, Cpl WIlson through distinguished devotion to duty and personal sacrifice helped to save the lives of at least 10 wounded men." (bio by: Don Morfe)
