Burial Site of Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient PFC Joseph Cicchetti, U.S. Army, World War II

A soldier in Company A, 148th Infantry, 37th "Buckeye" Infantry Division. Cicchetti was part of the assault on the first important line of Japanese defense at South Manila, Luzon, Philippines on February 9, 1945. He died of wounds received while leading a volunteer litter bearer team that rescued fourteen wounded men, deliberately drawing machine gun fire to himself in the process. ?By his skilled leadership , the indomitable will, and dauntless courage, Pfc. Cicchetti saved the lives of many of his fellow soldiers at the cost of his own." President Truman posthumously awarded Cicchetti the Congressional Medal of Honor on December 8, 1945.
