Robert D. Booker was born in Callaway July 11, 1920, and joined the Army in June 1942. By April 9, 1943, Bob was serving as a private in the 34th Infantry Division.
On that day, near Fondouk, Tunisia, he advanced alone across open terrain despite intense hostile fire and began firing on the enemy with his machine gun. After being wounded, he continued to fire until receiving a second, fatal, wound.
For these actions, he was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor a year later, on April 25, 1944, one of only seven Nebraskans awarded that honor in World War II.
