National Medal of Honor Day - we pay homage to the  Medal of Honor Recipients, however for many of us we acknowledge their heroic actions on a daily basis.

Detachment 1347 pays homage to their namesake - Private First Class Eugene Arnold Obregon Medal of Honor.
PFC Obregon (Nov 12, 1930 – Sep 26, 1950) is a United States Marine who was posthumously awarded the United States' highest military decoration for valor — the MEDAL OF HONOR — for sacrificing his life to save that of a wounded comrade during the Second Battle of Seoul. On September 26, 1950, Private First Class Obregon was fatally wounded by enemy machine gun fire while using his body to shield a wounded fellow Marine. PFC Obregon, of Mexican American descent, was born on Nov 12, 1930 in East Los Angeles, California. He attended Theodore Roosevelt High School in Los Angeles before enlisting in the United States Marine Corps on June 7, 1948, at the age of 17.
SEMPER FIDELIS!
