John Basilone fought in the Battle of Guadalcanal during WWII where he held off 3,000 Japanese troops after his unit was reduced to himself and two other Marines. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at Guadalcanal. He was killed in action on the first day of the Battle of Iwo Jima. He was the only enlisted Marine in World War II to receive the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. #johnbasilone #iwojima #worldwarii #heroesweardogtags #greatestgeneration #marines #thepacific #downrangefirearmstraining #onlyhitscount #igmilitia #neverforget thanks to @jflevesquejr for this post on his FB
