Medal of Honor recipient Bob Maxwell turns 92 Friday.

 

Maxwell is one of only 12 living Medal of Honor recipients who fought in World War II.

He was awarded the Medal of Honor for "Conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 7 September 1944" at Operation Dragoon in Southern France.

 

Maxwell smothered the blast of an enemy hand grenade with his body to protect those around him.  He survived his wounds and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions.

 

This November 5th, Maxwell will be honored at Lane Community College with the dedication of the new Maxwell Student Veteran Center.
