24 Jun = On this day in 1951 in Korea, Emory L. Bennett, would voluntarily stay behind and provide devastating covering fire to the enemy so his company could effect an orderly withdrawal until he was mortally wounded. His willing self-sacrifice and intrepid actions saved the position from being overrun and would posthumously earn the MOH.
