Here's my question:

No I mean WWII. He was still alive. I think we're all well aware of his actions in WWI.

Head of the Regional/District Selective Service Board. War Bond Tours. All after FDR and George Marshall turned down his offer to serve "with regret".

It was Camp later Fort Gordon.

I knew it was Georgia, 03USMC. Just couldn't remember where.

Yep, ironic as hell that the man who had such reservations about military service to start with should wind up head of his local draft board.

Okay next one:

In his engagement that merited the award of the Medal of Honor, how many Germans did York kill? An approximate number will suffice.

20-28 depending on the account. 132 prisoners by York's count.

Correct.

We're probably running out of Sergeant York material but here's at least one more:

Before he became an avid Christian York was a hell raiser. Drank, gambled and visited saloons to a great extent. What finally made him give up that course of his life?

Correct. York's best friend was shot dead in a bar brawl.
