Gus Kefurt
Gus J. Kefurt (1917 - December 25, 1944) was a United States Army soldier and a recipient of the United States military's highest decoration—the Medal of Honor—for his actions in World War II.
Kefurt joined the Army from Youngstown, Ohio in August 1943, and by December 23, 1944 was serving as a Staff Sergeant in Company K, 15th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Infantry Division. On that day and the next, he led his men in a fight against German forces near Bennwihr, France. He exposed himself to hostile fire in order to encourage his men and direct their fire, led his men in the defense of positions despite repeated enemy attacks, and refused medical evacuation even after being seriously wounded. He was killed on December 25, and posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during the battle.
Kefurt was buried at the Epinal American Cemetery and Memorial in Épinal, France.
Upon re-stationing to Fort Benning in 1996, 3rd Brigade - 3rd Infantry Division designated building 9001 on Kelley Hill as the Kefurt Fitness Center.
