Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sergeant William Nelson, United States Army, earned the Medal of Honor at daybreak of April 24, 1943. William L. Nelson was born in Delaware, possibly in 1918. Enlisting on January 9 1941, he trained at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He served in action with the 60th Infantry Regiment, 9th Infantry Division.(1). His citation read as follows: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life, above and beyond the call of duty in action involving actual conflict at Djebel Dardys, northwest of Sedjenane, Tunisia. On the morning of April 24, 1943, Sgt. Nelson led his section of heavy mortars to a forward position where he placed his guns and men. Under intense enemy artillery, mortar, and small-arms fire, he advanced alone to a chosen observation position from which he directed the laying of a concentrated mortar barrage which successfully halted an initial enemy counterattack.
