Anthony Thomas Kahoohanohano
Birth: Jul. 22, 1930
Maui County
Hawaii, USA
Death: Sep. 1, 1951

Korean War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Assigned to Company H, 2nd Battalion, 17th Infantry Regiment, 7th Infantry Division, he was in charge of a machine-gun squad supporting the defensive positions forces in the vicinity of Chup'a-ri, Korea, on 1 September 1951. Under a limited withdrawal, he provided cover fire for his team. Although wounded in the shoulder, he armed himself and returned to his original position, fighting until his ammunition was depleted. He then engaged in hand-to-hand combat until he was killed. His total body count was thirteen enemies, two beaten to death with an entrenching tool. His citation reads, in part, "his heroic stand so inspired his comrades that they launched a counterattack that completely repulsed the enemy." For this action he was initially awarded the Distinguished Service Cross; the award was upgraded to the CMOH in 2009. (bio by: Thom Painter)
