William Henry Johnson fought off dozens of German soldiers alone in WW1.
Henry, as he was known, in May 1918 was alone in Argonne with no weapon and German soldiers closing into his location. He fought and survived.
President Roosevelt declared Henry as one of the bravest US Americans to take up arms. He came back to the US with honors but a segregated parade.
He died in 1929 from myocarditis. He received a Purple Heart posthumously in 1996, and Barack Obama awarded him the Medal of Honor in 2015.
Inclusion matters.
