- Thomas Neibaur, World War 1 Soldier
Beskrivelse: After a long journey from Sugar City, Idaho, to France's Argonne Forest France during World War I,young Thomas Neibaur found himself in the core of the American Expeditionary Force's most important offensive.After becoming separated in advance of his unit, he, despite serious wounds, single-handedly stopped a Germancounterattack at a critical hill known as Cte de Chtillon. For this remarkable feat of valor, he received the Medal ofHonor and other awards, becoming the first Idaho and first Mormon recipient of the nation's highest combat award.But after a heroic return and brief celebrity, his life followed a tragic downward arc, culminating in his attempt to returnhis medal because, as he put it, it could not feed his family.
