New Hanover High School's Two Medal of Honor Recipients

From the May 28, 2013, WWAY 3ABC TV, Wilmington, NC, "Making History: NHHS Medal of Honor Recipients" by Tim Buckley.

New Hanover High School, serving Wilmington and its country has a remarkable record as being the only-known high school in the country with multiple Medal of Honor winners.  Two graduates received the nation's highest honor.

CHARLES MURRY, Class of 1938, nearly single-handedly saved his company in Alsace, France.

BILLY HALYBURTON,  Class of 1943, gave his life for fallen marines at the Battle of Okinawa.
