Robert Bush was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his actions on Okinawa, Japan in May of 1945. When his platoon leader became injured Robert Bush ran across an open field under enemy fire to treat the fallen marine's wounds. Upon rendering critical medical treatment to the man he was struck by shrapnel from three grenades loosing an eye yet he still found the strength to assault and eliminate an enemy machine gun emplacement before returning to his platoon.
