Captain Henry Will Jones of Georgia. He was a well seasoned Marine by this point in the war. When he landed on Peleliu he was with HQ, but due to high attrition rates among officers, he was tasked with commanding L/3/7 by Oct. 18th. On that day his men were pinned down at the base of Hill 210 and he called for armor support. He boarded the tank to give direction to his men and the Japanese positions. He was KIA.
