Messman Third Class Doris Miller, USN, was awarded the Navy Cross and several other medals for manning anti-aircraft guns ( even though he had no training in their use) and attending the wounded. 





Doris Miller did not live out the war. He was killed in action in 1943 when the Linscombe Bay was sunk by a torpedo in the Battle of Makin.

Doris Miller was from Waco, Texas. One of the three YMCAs in town is named after him. I drive the school bus for the After School Program and bring kids to the Doris Miller YMCA every day....



There is a big plaque over there honoring his service to America.
