John Basilone – World War ll Medal of Honor Winner

My father-in-law, George Basilone, was always proud to have the same last name as the World War ll hero, John Basilone (also known as Manilla John).  John is a legend in the Marine Corp, being the only enlisted recipient of the Medal of Honor, Navy Cross and the Purple Heart.  We offer this as another tribute to a great American who made the ultimate sacrifice for his country.

Here is a brief story of how John earned his Medal of Honor
The Hero of Guadalcanal
