2 Medals of Honor

November 9th, 2014

There have only been 19 two-time recipients of the Medal of Honor (the country's highest military honor), and three of them are buried in Cypress Hills National Cemetery: Daniel Daly ("Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?"), John Cooper, and Louis Williams (a.k.a. Ludwig Andreas Olsen).

    Very interesting piece of information. I had not known that there were any two time medal of honor recipients!

    A good friend of my parents received the Medal of Honor for his actions during WWII. It was an honor to know Rudy.
