About Nelson Miles Holderman

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Captain (Infantry) Nelson Miles Holderman, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on October 2 - 8, 1918, while serving with 307th Infantry, 77th Division, in action at Charlevaux, Argonne Forest. Captain Holderman commanded a company of a battalion which was cut off and surrounded by the enemy. He was wounded on 4, 5, and 7 October, but throughout the entire period, suffering great pain and subjected to fire of every character, he continued personally to lead and encourage the officers and men under his command with unflinching courage and with distinguished success. On 6 October, in a wounded condition, he rushed through enemy machinegun and shell fire and carried two wounded men to a place of safety.
