ABSTRACT
This section presents interesting historical facts about the U.S. Armed Forces. Army dentist Captain Ben L. Salomon was awarded the Medal of Honor for his gallantry in action against the Japanese in Saipan. The uniform pattern of the Virginia militia served as the basis for the buff and blue uniforms of the officers of the Continental Army. The ballad of "Rodger Young" was inspired by the gallantry displayed by Private Rodger Young in July of 1943.
