James L. Stone, Medal of Honor Recipient for Korea Heroism, Dies at 89


We have lost another hero.   Muffled drums and the slow march for Colonel James L. Stone, United States Army, who received the Medal of Honor for his heroism along the Imjin River in Korea with 8th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division in November of 1951.   He has died in Arlington, Texas at the age of 89.

Read his citation.   Courage that defies description.   May we have those among us now who are capable of as much.

Godspeed, Colonel.
