Major Whittlesey and The Lost Battalion
Reading more about this tough-as-nails SOB today. Of the 554 soldiers in his unit,190 were wounded, 107 killed and 63 were MIA. Encircled for 5 days by the German Army in October, 1918, they became known as "The Lost Battalion." Major Whittlesey and his men never gave up. Now that's leadership. He received the Medal of Honor in December 1918. Thank you, Major Whittlesey.
