BEAUFORD T. ANDERSON - PHOTOGRAPH SIGNED CO-SIGNED BY: JOHN J. TOMINAC - HFSID 204041

 
BEAUFORD T. ANDERSON and JOHN J. TOMINAC
The two Medal of Honor recipients smile together looking at a book of stamps
Photograph signed: "Col. John J. Tominac/Medal of Honor/WWII" and "Beauford T. Anderson". B/w, 10x8. In 1983, the U.S. post office issued a 20-cent stamp honoring the Medal of Honor. Anderson, Tominac and others are looking at a sheet of the postage stamps. BEAUFORD T. ANDERSON (1922-1996) received the Medal of Honor for combat heroism for his actions on Okinawa in April 1945. Then a Staff Sergeant in the 96th Infantry Division (Organized Reserve), he single-handedly defeated a predawn Japanese counterattack against his unit by pulling the safety pins on American mortar rounds, arming them by banging the bases on rocks and throwing these now-live rounds at the enemy, finally forcing them to retreat. JOHN J. TOMINAC (1922-1998) was awarded the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on September 12, 1944. In an attack on Saulz de Vesoul, France, First Lieutenant Tominac charged alone over 50 yards of exposed terrain onto an enemy roadblock to dispatch a three-man crew of German machine gunners with a single burst from his Thompson machinegun. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso (no show through). Fine condition.
