                    13. Sgt. William Sawelson



                    Posthumous Medal of Honor winner, October 26, 1918

                    Citation:

                    Hearing a wounded man in a shell hole some distance away calling for water, Sgt. Sawelson, upon his own initiative, left shelter and crawled through heavy machinegun fire to where the man lay, giving him what water he had in his canteen. He then went back to his own shell hole, obtained more water, and was returning to the wounded man when he was killed by a machinegun bullet.

                        2. RMS Lusitania

                        Infamously sunk by the German U-boat U-20 on the 7th of May, 1915, with 1,198 lost. One of the factors that led to US involvement in the war two years later (128 American lives were lost).
