Our next Medal of Honor recipient is probably thought of as a Missourian, rather than a Kansan. He was born and raised in Missouri, served from Missouri, was buried in Missouri. But for many of his post-WWI years, he lived in Mission, Kansas. Some people have been recognized as Kansans for less.
Private First Class John Lewis Barkley was born in Blairstown, Missouri on August 28, 1895. He served in Company K, 4th Infantry Regiment, 3rd Division. His moment came at Cunel, France on October 7, 1918, when he repaired an enemy machine gun and mounted it on a disabled French tank. From there he broke up an enemy counterattack not once, but twice.
