Medal of Honor recipient Moses Williams (1845-1899) served in the U.S. Army for 31 years. When he hadn't received his medal for "distinguished gallantry in action" after a delay of 15 years, Williams was forced to petition the Secretary of War while serving at Fort Stevens on the Oregon Coast as an ordnance sergeant. He earned the country's highest military award in 1881 during combat with Apaches in New Mexico. Several members of his patrol with the 9th U.S. Cavalry's Buffalo Soldiers were pinned down, and Williams rescued the wounded with little regard for his own life. He retired in Vancouver, and died shortly thereafter. (Courtesy of the U.S.
