The farce begins
.....Bennie Solomon and his absurd fairy tale
Benjamin Solomon the first recipient and here is his story
a 29 yr old Jewish dentist with the 27th Infantry Division, who was on Saipan in July 1944.
Somehow his dental tent was 30 yds behind the front lines.
The Japs attack Bennie
Japanese soldiers hit the Regiment’s 2,000 strong 1st and
It was one of the largest attacks attempted in the Pacific
Theater during World War II. Although both units fought furiously, the
enemy soon penetrated the Battalions’ combined perimeter and inflicted
hundreds of casualties.
Bennie keeps filling cavities
30 wounded soldiers walked and crawled, into
Captain Salomon's tent. As the perimeter began to be overrun, it became
increasingly difficult for Captain Salomon to work on the wounded.
Bennie sees Jap brutality
Japanese start bayoneting wounded
soldiers outside his ' Dental Station ' and Bennie goes into battle
Crouching behind his dental chair he
shoots the first Jap . Next he sees two Japs crawling under the tent -
he draws his 45 and plugs them. Four more attack and
Bennie rushes them, he kicks the knife out of the hand of one, shots
another, and bayoneted a third. He head butts the fourth Jap and his
dental orderly shoots him.
" Get the hell out of here "
Bennie orders the Battalion to retreat
gravity of the situation, Captain Salomon ordered the battalion and
the wounded to retreat while he attempted to hold off the enemy
until they were clear.
Bennie takes over the
machine gun and kills 98 Japs
Captain Salomon then grabbed a rifle from
one of the wounded and rushed out of the tent. After four men were killed
while manning a machine gun, Captain Salomon took control of it.
The next day, finger still on the
machine gun trigger, Salomon was found dead, surrounded by 98 dead
Japanese soldiers. Salomon had killed so many men that he had
been forced to move the gun four different times in order to get a
clear field of fire.
There were seventy-six
bullet holes in Salomon's body.
