<h2>CANADIAN-BORN RECIPIENTS OF THE UNITED STATES MEDAL OF HONOR</h2>

"Poor is the Nation that has no heroes, but beggard isthat Nation that has and forgets them.">
Compiled and Arranged by Lieutenant Colonel William A Smy, OMM, CD, UE<p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">Few Canadians interested inmilitary history are aware that of the 3,425 awards of the United States Medalof Honor, 59 awards were to men who were Canadian-born. The history of the Medalhas been well recorded elsewhere; the aim of this study is to document theawards to these Canadians, with the hope that more information will beforthcoming. Suffice to highlight these aspects of the awards:</span><p style="text-align: justify"><img border="0" src="http://cdnarmy.ca/album/Misc/US%20MOH%20Winners/moh.gif" align="right" width="231" height="398"></span><ul style="margin-top: 0cm; margin-bottom: 0cm" type="disc"> <li style="text-align: justify"> <span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">Robert Sweeney is the only Canadian to have received the Medal of Honor twice . both for peace time acts of gallantry;</span></li> <li style="text-align: justify"> <span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">Douglas Munro is the only US Coastguardsman to have received the Medal;</span></li> <li style="text-align: justify"> <span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">The brothers, Harry and Willard Miller received their Medals for their bravery in the same operation under the same circumstances in the Spanish-American War; and</span></li> <li style="text-align: justify"> <span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">John C Gilmore and Martin T McMahon both rose to General rank in the US Army.</span></li></ul><p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">Notes:<p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">1. Those men from NovaScotia and New Brunswick who won the Medal of Honor before Confederation in1867, and those from Newfoundland before it entered Confederation in 1949, arelisted here as Canadian born.</span><p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">2. The term .Accredited to.refers to the American convention of assigning a home state to the recipient.Thus, a Canadian joining in New York State would have his award accredited tothat state. The accreditation is a useful tool when the published records do notindicate the place of enlistment. All but 56 of the 3,425 awards have beenaccredited to states or the District of Columbia.</span><p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">3. Many authorities statethat 29 Canadian-born men won the Medal of Honor in the US Civil War, but recentresearch has increased that number to 33. Undoubtedly, that number will increaseas more attention is placed on the subject.</span><p style="text-align: justify"><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">4. The information in thismedal roll was obtained from: The Congressional Medal of Honor Society(chartered by the US Congress) and the US Army Center of Military History.</span>THE MEDAL ROLL

Sgt Lemon (then Sp4c), Company E, distinguishedhimself while serving as an assistant machine gunner during the defense of FireSupport Base Illingworth. When the base came under heavy attack, Sgt Lemonengaged a numerically superior enemy with machine gun and rifle fire from hisdefensive position until both weapons malfunctioned. He hen used hand grenadesto fend off the intensified enemy attack launched in his direction. Aftereliminating all but 1 of the enemy soldiers in the immediate vicinity, hepursued and disposed of the remaining soldier in hand-to-hand combat. Despitefragment wounds from an exploding grenade, Sgt Lemon regained his position,carried a more seriously wounded comrade to an aid station, and, as he returned,was wounded a second time by enemy fire. Disregarding his personal injuries, hemoved to his position through a hail of small arms and grenade fire. Sgt Lemonimmediately realized that the defensive sector was in danger of being overrun bythe enemy and unhesitatingly assaulted the enemy soldiers by throwing handgrenades and engaging in hand-to-hand combat. He was wounded yet a third time,but his determined efforts successfully drove the enemy from the position.Securing an operable machine gun, Sgt Lemon stood atop an embankment fullyexposed to enemy fire, and placed effective fire upon the enemy until hecollapsed from his multiple wounds and exhaustion. After regaining consciousnessat the aid station, he refused medical evacuation until his more seriouslywounded comrades had been evacuated. Sgt Lemon.s gallantry and extraordinaryheroism are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service andreflect great credit on him, his unit, and the US Army..</span><span style="font-size: 11.0pt;">His award is accredited to Tawas City, Michigan.</span>

Assignedto protect the left flank, he discovered hostile troops digging in. As hereported this information, several German machineguns opened fire, stopping theAmerican advance. Knowing the position of the enemy, Sgt. MacGillivaryvolunteered to knock out 1 of the guns while another company closed in from theright to assault the remaining strong points. He circled from the left throughwoods and snow, carefully worked his way to the emplacement and shot the 2camouflaged gunners at a range of 3 feet as other enemy forces withdrew. Earlyin the afternoon of the same day, Sgt. MacGillivary was dispatched onreconnaissance and found that Company I was being opposed by about 6 machinegunsreinforcing a company of fanatically fighting Germans. His unit began an attackbut was pinned down by furious automatic and small arms fire. With a clear ideaof where the enemy guns were placed, he voluntarily embarked on a lone combatpatrol. Skillfully taking advantage of all available cover, he stalked theenemy, reached a hostile machinegun and blasted its crew with a grenade. Hepicked up a submachine gun from the battlefield and pressed on to within 10yards of another machinegun, where the enemy crew discovered him and feverishlytried to swing their weapon into line to cut him down. He charged ahead, jumpedinto the midst of the Germans and killed them with several bursts. Withouthesitation, he moved on to still another machinegun, creeping, crawling, andrushing from tree to tree, until close enough to toss a grenade into theemplacement and close with its defenders. He dispatched this crew also, but washimself seriously wounded. Through his indomitable fighting spirit, greatinitiative, and utter disregard for personal safety in the face of powerfulenemy resistance, Sgt.
