George Henry Ramer
Birth: Mar. 27, 1927
Somerset County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Sep. 12, 1951, South Korea

Korean War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps in the 3d Platoon, Company I, 3d Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on September 12, 1951 in Korea. His citation reads in part "Unable to hold the position against an immediate, overwhelming hostile counterattack, he ordered his group to withdraw and singlehandedly fought the enemy to furnish cover for his men and for the evacuation of three fatally wounded marines. Severely wounded a second time, 2d Lt. Ramer refused aid when his men returned to help him and, after ordering them to seek shelter, courageously manned his post until the hostile troops overran his position and he fell mortally wounded." (bio by: Don Morfe)
