Bryant Homer Womack, Medal of Honor

Blue Ridge Now in Asheville wrote a nice story about Army Pvt. Bryant H. Womack and the North Carolina Korean War Veterans Association.

Thursday was the 57th anniversary of Womack’s death. He was killed in action on March 12, 1952, in Sokso-ri, Korea. Womack was 20 years old when he died and is a Medal of Honor recipient for his “conspicuous gallantry above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy.”

Korean War Veterans traveled from as far as Chester, S.C., 150 miles away, to his gravesite in Mill Spring.
