        Thirty-three countries are listed as the birthplaces of the recipients, and Ireland, with 258, has the most by far.

        Some of those 258 listed Ireland as their place of birth and even included their county of origin: Cork has 19 Medal of Honor recipients, Tipperary and Dublin each have 11, Limerick has 10, Kerry 8, Galway 7, Antrim and Tyrone 6 each, whileSligo and Kilkenny each have 5.

        Out of the 19 men to receive a second Medal of Honor, 5 were born in Ireland. They are, according to Concannon, "Henry Hogan from Clare, John Laverty from Tyrone, Dublin’s John Cooper, whose name at birth was John Laver Mather, John King and Patrick Mullen. Three double recipients were Irish-Americans: U.S. Marines Daniel Daly and John Joseph Kelly, and the U.S. Navy’s John McCloy."

        Some modern day recipients are: John King, U.S. Navy, from Ballinrobe, County Mayo, double recipient in 1901 & 1909; Pvt. John Joseph Kelly, Chicago, Ill., received both the Army & Navy Medal of Honor in WWI; Col. William J.(Wild Bill) Donovan, member of New York’s Fighting 69th in WWI; Audie Murphy, who was turned down by the Marines and the Navy as he was only 5’5 and weighed 112 lbs. The Army accepted him in June,1942, and he became WW II”s most decorated hero; Fr. Timothy O’Callahan, who was not only the first Catholic Chaplain to receive the Medal of Honor, but the first of any faith to be so recognized.
        In all, 245 men were awarded the Medal of Honor in the Vietnam War.
        It would be impossible to calculate an exact number of Irish-Americans on the Medal of Honor list. However, Irish surnames are plentiful. There are 21 Murphys, 20 Kellys(or Kelley), and 8 Sullivans. Names beginning with the Irish prefix “Mc” spill onto multiple pages.

          While in active service, O'Callahan reported aboard USS Franklin on March 2, 1945. 17 days later, the ship was severely damaged at dawn by two bombs from a lone Japanese aircraft. The hangar deck immediately became an inferno of exploding gas tanks and ammunition. Although wounded by one of the explosions after the attack, Chaplain O'Callahan moved about the exposed and slanting flight deck, administering the last rites to the dying, comforting the wounded, and leading officers and crewmen into the flames to carry hot bombs and shells to the edge of the deck for jettisoning. He personally recruited a damage control party and led it into one of the main ammunition magazines to wet it down and prevent its exploding. For this action he received the Navy Cross, which he publicly refused (the only man to do so in World War II). At the time, it was speculated that O'Callahan was offered the Navy Cross in lieu of the Medal of Honor since his heroic actions on USS Franklin highlighted perceived lapses in leadership by the ship's commanding officer, Captain Leslie E. Gehres, which reflected poorly on the Navy. President Harry Truman intervened after the resulting public outcry and the Medal of Honor was awarded to O'Callahan on January 23, 1946. He was the first Naval Chaplain so decorated.

          The cheap housing and otherwise depopulating cities of the rust belt, combined with a longstanding need for unskilled labor, have led to these regions becoming major destinations for refugees and immigrants.

    Despite it being close to civilizations, such as New York and New England, Pennsylvania is actually a really big fricking place with less to do than in Idaho and generational poverty in every direction, so poops out lots of cannon fodder

      Nice bait moron. Also for being "civilizations", israelite york and israelite england sure do have much shittier gun laws than pachads have to deal with. Besides the fact that we have actual land to shoot on instead of just being range cucks.

        I made the unfortunate mistake of moving to PA about two years ago. This entire state is a shithole. I didn't know it was even possible to have a road system this bad. And the gun /k/ulture is abysmal, yet people have a warped perspective because you have NY and DC sandwiching you. This state is fricking KEKED

        Also, I'm virtually the only person in this entire fricking city who wasn't born in a 50 mile radius of the place. PAtards are more inbred than southeasterners.

        It's pretty for approximately 1 week in fall though, I'll give you that

    Grandpa was from Kansas. He died when I was really young so I never heard too many war stories but I ended up with his P08 Luger that still has the leather holster, 2 extended magazines, and a manual. When Grandma died one my uncles had to notify their local bomb squad because Grandpa had several live grenades in his war chest in the basement. He fought in the Battle of the Bulge.
