Born on the Sisseton-Wahpeton Reservation in 1917, U.S. Army Master Sgt. Woodrow Keeble became one of North Dakota's most decorated sons. In 2008, he was awarded the Medal of Honor posthumously for his heroic actions during the Korean War.

Then-Spc. Ty Carter (left) checks a target during a patrol outside Outpost Fritsche, where he was deployed in 2009 with Blue Platoon, Bravo “Black Knight” Troop, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division. The Soldiers were observing the village of Kamdesh. The area was so dangerous, Carter’s platoon sergeant, then-Sgt. 1st Class Jonathan Hill, explained that they actually had to beg to go outside the wire, and several months later the men had to fight for their lives when 300-400 insurgents nearly overran nearby Combat Outpost Keating. Carter risked his life repeatedly to get a wounded Soldier, Spc. Stephan Mace, to safety during the battle, actions for which he will receive the Medal of Honor in an Aug. 26 White House ceremony.
