Biography

American military, a US Marine Corps hero who was awarded a Medal of Honor for heroics in battle on the island of Iwo Jima during WWII.

Stein enlisted in the Marines shortly after the onset of WWII. He was sent to Iwo Jima, landing on February 19, 1945. Assigned to carry the 25-pound machine gun known as The Stinger, he kept Japanese forces at bay until he ran out of ammunition. He made a run for a renewed supply of ammunition, dragging wounded Marines to safety and running back to save other men. For his efforts that day he was posthumously awarded The Medal of Honor. Stein was killed by Japanese gunfire on March 1, 1945.
