Before 9/11, our HS had a long standing tradition of a senior class trip to DC and NYC. Among our stops on these trips would be for our class to place a wreath at the Tomb. Both myself (class of '95) and my husband ('class of '96) attended these trips.

I served with William Charette HMC was a MOH receiptent who had the duty to escort three unknown from Korea and pick one to reside with the other two. As a Corpsman treating wounded Marines in December 1950 earned him that award. I was stationed with him on the U.S.S Triton for over a year before I realized he was a MOH. That happened during the change of command proceedings as everyone wore their medals. He considered that he received it because of those who died in that battle, not for anything he did.
