Louis J. Sebille11/21/1915-8/5/1950, Age 34

Mr. Sebille was a Major in the U.S. Air Force attached to the 67th Fighter/Bomber Squadron.  He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.  His F-51 aircraft was severely damaged by anti-aircraft fire over Hanchang, Korea.  Rather than abandon his aircraft, Major Sebille continued the attack under heavy fire.  His aircraft was again damaged and he dove onto the enemy gun battery to his death.  His last words over the radio were "I'll get those dirty bastards!"  Mr. Sebille went to school in the Walled Lake area.
