Henry Edgeworth and Neil Kirkley, who served during the Vietnam War, render a salute to Noah Odell Knight.
‘Conspicuous gallantry, indomitable courage’

The temperature was falling. The rain turned to snow. The sounds of rockets, shells and gunfire filled the air near the Imjim River in South Korea, not far from the 38th Parallel.

Pfc. Noah Odell Knight, 22, of Pageland, was on Hill 355 when Chinese troops attacked.
