He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his bravery. But his story has never been told...until now. This is the story of John McKinney, who, on the morning of May 11, 1945, received the Medal of Honor for his actions against a Japanese surprise attack. That day, McKinney returned fire, using every available weapon-even his fists-standing alone against wave after wave of fanatical Japanese soldiers. At the end, John McKinney was alive- with over one hundred Japanese bodies before him. This is the story of an extraordinary man whose courage and fortitude in battle saved many American lives, and whose legacy has been sadly forgotten by all but a few. Here, the proud legacy of John McKinney lives on.

Men diid extraordinary things, of course, not for medals, but because they were doing their jobs.

It sure seemed bad to die in a place that ain't got no name.
