Onyon, John I. T/Sgt Gp Hq Chief Clerk, S-4 add Per SO#67, 1Nov43, awarded the Good Conduct Medal for exemplary behavior, efficiency and fidelity. Cited by 2BD for personal bravery on 23Jan45: Cited for "outstanding and heroic performance of duty on 23 Jan 1945. On this date, a Fortress crashed at AAF Station 118. After skidding along for more than 100 yards, the bomber crashed into a parked car and then continued on, finally coming to a halt after ploughing into the rear of the Intelligence Briefing Room in the Headquarters area. Sgt Onyon was in his office when he heard the sound of the Fortress as it hit the ground and crashed into the building nearby. When Sgt Onyon arrived on the scene, there were others who had arrived there earlier, but who were just standing by, doing nothing in spite of the appearance of a small flame in the wreckage. Realizing the damage which would be done to the crowd, plane, and site if the Fortress's gas tanks were to explode, he ran back to the Intelligence Building and obtained a fire extinguisher. Then, standing almost on top of the tongue of flame, he brought the streams of the extinguisher to bear on the fire, controlling the blaze and finally putting it out. Sgt Onyon remained at his post, ready to act in the event of the fire breaking out again, until he was relieved by the Station Fire Department. The quick actions and superior presence of mind displayed by Sgt Onyon on this occasion prevented the fire from spreading and reflects the highest credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States."   Group Headquarters Photo
