This is Woodrow Wilson Keeble (May 16, 1917 – January 28, 1982) a U.S. Army National Guard veteran of both World War II and the Korean War. He was a full-blooded member of the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate, a federally recognized tribe of Dakota people. Although he was wounded (at least) twice in World War II and three times in the Korean War, he only received two purple hearts. Following a long campaign by his family and the congressional delegations of both North and South Dakota, on March 3, 2008, President George W. Bush posthumously awarded Keeble the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Korean War.
