This listing is for a very scarce and 100% authentic signature of WW2 Medal of Honor recipient MG George L. Mabry, USA (1917-1990). This is a 1982-dated postal FDC personally inscribed/signed by Mabry in black pen. Cover is in nice condition with only minor signs of age, toning, and handling. See the pics for a visual and ask questions before bidding. I'm offering this cover "as is" with no returns. Feel free to check out my other listings. I have lots of collectible militaria available including many original WW2 patches, some named pieces, and several other MOH/Military signatures. You never know what you'll find. Thanks for your interest. SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!! ****** Medal of Honor citation Mabry's official Medal of Honor citation reads: He was commanding the 2d Battalion, 8th Infantry, in an attack through the Hurtgen Forest near Schevenhutte, Germany, on 20 November 1944. During the early phases of the assault, the leading elements of his battalion were halted by a minefield and immobilized by heavy hostile fire. Advancing alone into the mined area, Col. Mabry established a safe route of passage. He then moved ahead of the foremost scouts, personally leading the attack, until confronted by a boobytrapped double concertina obstacle. With the assistance of the scouts, he disconnected the explosives and cut a path through the wire. Upon moving through the opening, he observed 3 enemy in foxholes whom he captured at bayonet point. Driving steadily forward he paced the assault against 3 log bunkers which housed mutually supported automatic weapons. Racing up a slope ahead of his men, he found the initial bunker deserted, then pushed on to the second where he was suddenly confronted by 9 onrushing enemy. Using the butt of his rifle, he felled 1 adversary and bayoneted a second, before his scouts came to his aid and assisted him in overcoming the others in hand-to-hand combat. Accompanied by the riflemen, he charged the third bunker under pointblank small arms fire and led the way into the fortification from which he prodded 6 enemy at bayonet point. Following the consolidation of this area, he led his battalion across 300 yards of fire-swept terrain to seize elevated ground upon which he established a defensive position which menaced the enemy on both flanks, and provided his regiment a firm foothold on the approach to the Cologne Plain. Col. Mabry's superlative courage, daring, and leadership in an operation of major importance exemplify the finest characteristics of the military service. *****
