Early this morning, Herschel “Woody” Williams, the last surviving Medal of Honor recipient from WWII passed away, surrounded by family, at the West Virginia VA Hospital that bears his name. The Trust is honored to have known Woody and joins with all those who were touched by his extraordinary lifetime of work on behalf of veterans and Gold Star Families. In particular, we mourn with our partners at the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Please take a moment today to remember and honor Woody by listening to his perspective while visiting Gettysburg. His legacy will live on through the work done by the Woody Williams Foundation.

Learn more about Woody Williams' extraordinary life by exploring his profile on the Medal of Honor Valor Trail https://www.valortrail.org/stories/hershel-woody-williams



SALUTE
... watch the six-minute video linked above to watch Williams visit Gettysburg and talk about his experiences at Iwo Jima in relation to those soldiers who fought at Gettysburg.

An amazing story of valour and indeed a sad day as the last of a generation of his kind to pass.

Thank you for sharing this noteworthy message. A moment will be dedicated this day to his memory as he goes to join his comrades once again.

Thanks for posting this Blake.

A moment of silence in commemoration of sacrifice, and in appreciation of service.
