Inscription
Named in Honor of
1st Lt Frank N. Mitchell
Platoon Leader, A/1/7
Awarded the Medal of Honor (posthumously) for action against enemy forces in Korea on 26 November 1950.While on patrol and suddenly receiving fire at point blank range, 1st Lt Mitchell dashed to the front under blistering fire to direct and encourage his men to drive the outnumbered enemy from their position. Wounded, he reorganized his platoon and spearheaded a fierce hand-to-hand struggle to repel the onslaught. Wounded again, he refused aid and personnally led a search for the wounded and waged a single-handed battle covering the withdrawal of his men until he fell.

He gallantly gave his life for his country.
