 USS Leonard F. Mason (DD-852) Details

USS Leonard F. Mason (DD-852)

The USS Leonard F Mason was named for 

Leonard Foster Mason, born Middleboro, Ky., 22 February 1920, enlisted in the Marine Corps in April 1943. Promoted to private first class in March 1943, Mason was sent to the Pacific war zone in October. During the landing on Guam 22 July 1944, two enemy machineguns opened fire on Mason’s platoon. Although mortally wounded, Mason cleared out the hostile position, acting on his own initiative. His heroic act in the face of almost certain death enabled his platoon to accomplish its mission. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Photo from the USMC History Division.
