100% authentic signature of WWII Medal of Honor recipient M/Sgt. Donald E. Rudolph (1921-2006). You may read his full MOH signature below or at CMOHS.org. Signature/inscription is written in black pen by Rudolph himself. This piece is a 3x5" card in great shape with only minor age and handling marks. It has a couple of dog earred corners. Please ask questions before bidding as I'm selling this historical signature "as is". Shipping within the USA will be $2 for cards $3 for FDCs. Combined shipping is automatic. International shipping at cost. Insurance is an extra $1.70. Be advised that I do not issue refunds or credits on uninsured items damaged or mysteriously "lost" in the mail. I've been collecting militaria for well over 40 years and have quite an accumulation. I buy new things all the time and whatever I don't need to round out my personal collection gets listed. So check out my other auctions from time to time. You never know what you'll find. I have many genuine and original WW2 patches, many signatures of MOH recipients and other military notables, and so much more. You never know what you'll find. Thanks for your interest! SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!! He was awarded the medal whilst serving as a sergeant and acting as leader of his platoon on Luzon island in the northern Philippines; his actions took place on February 5, 1945. Whilst giving first aid on the battlefield he noticed that his unit was pinned down by gun fire from a ditch. Crawling to the ditch, using his rifle and grenades to protect himself, he then killed three enemy soldiers concealed there. He then continued to work his way across open ground to a line of pillboxes that were also firing and immobilising his company. He threw a grenade into the slit in the first of the pillboxes, and charged it and threw another grenade into the structure, killing the enemy machinegunners and so silencing their fire. After ordering several riflemen to cover his advance he proceeded to attack and neutralise 7 further pillboxes in quick succession. Later, when a tank attacked his platoon he advanced under covering fire, opened its hatch and dropped a white phosphorus grenade inside, killing the crew and negating its threat. His medal citation concludes that through "his outstanding heroism, superb courage, and leadership, and complete disregard for his own safety, [...] Rudolph cleared a path for an advance which culminated in one of the most decisive victories of the Philippine campaign."
