Deming Bronson

Deming Bronson was a United States Army officer who received the United States military's highest award, the Medal of Honor, for his actions in World War I. Bronson was born on July 8, 1894, in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. He attended the University of Washington where he majored in forestry and, from 1912 to 1916, played on the Washington Huskies football team. The University of Washington has erected a monument to commemorate eight alumni who have received the Medal Of Honor. No other non-service University has as many. Bronson joined the Army from Seattle, Washington, and by September 26, 1918, was serving in France as a first lieutenant with Company H of the 364th Infantry Regiment, 91st Division. On the first day of the Meuse-Argonne Offensive, near the village of Eclisfontaine, he was wounded by a grenade but continued to fight and helped capture an enemy dugout. Shot in the arm later that day, he refused medical evacuation and remained with his unit through the night.
