his citation:

"For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Sgt. Holcomb distinguished himself while serving as a squad leader in Company D during a combat assault mission. Sgt. Holcomb's company assault had landed by helicopter and deployed into a hasty defensive position to organize for a reconnaissance-in-force mission when it was attacked from 3 sides by an estimated battalion-size enemy force. Sgt. Holcomb's squad was directly in the path of the main enemy attack. With complete disregard for the heavy fire, Sgt. Holcomb moved among his men giving encouragement and directing fire on the assaulting enemy. When his machine gunner was knocked out, Sgt. Holcomb seized the weapon ran to a forward edge of the position, and placed withering fire on the enemy. His gallant actions caused the enemy to withdraw. Sgt. Holcomb treated and carried his wounded to a position of safety and reorganized his defensive sector despite a raging grass fire ignited by the incoming enemy mortar and rocket rounds. When the enemy assaulted the position a second time, Sgt. Holcomb again manned the forward machinegun, devastating the enemy attack and forcing the enemy to again break contact and withdraw. During the enemy withdrawal an enemy rocket hit Sgt. Holcomb's position, destroying his machinegun and severely wounding him. Despite his painful wounds, Sgt. Holcomb crawled through the grass fire and exploding mortar and rocket rounds to move the members of his squad, everyone of whom had been woulded, to more secure positions. Although grievously wounded and sustained solely by his indomitable will and courage, Sgt. Holcomb as the last surviving leader of his platoon organized his men to repel the enemy, crawled to the platoon radio and reported the third enemy assault on his position. His report brought friendly supporting fires on the charging enemy and broke the enemy attack. Sgt. Holcomb's inspiring leadership, fighting spirit, in action at the cost of his life were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit on himself, his unit, and the U.S. Army."

b. 5 December 1947
     William Dean Holcombe was born on 5 December 1947 at Baker, OR. He was the son of George Noble Holcombe Jr. and Wadean M. Rohner.

Thomas Stoughton

b. 9 July 1593, d. 25 March 1661
     Thomas Stoughton was baptized on 9 July 1593 at Naughton parish, Suffolk, England.1 He was the son of Rev. Thomas Stoughton.1 Thomas Stoughton married Elizabeth Montpesan circa 1612.1 Thomas Stoughton died on 25 March 1661 at Windsor, Hartford Co., CT, at age 67.

Thomas grew up in a home where the burning religious issues of the times were discussed. He had two brothers, John, who was educated at Emmanuel College, Cambridge, who became a minister, with "obnoxious views", objectionable to the government, and Israel, who emigrated to New England, probably about 1633. Israel returned to England, about 1643, to support Oliver Cromwell against the crown.


Thomas Stoughton came on the Mary and John in 1630, with children, Thomas Jr., Katherine and possibly his first wife, although she may have died in England. He became a freeman in Dorchester on 18 May 1631 and he served in the General Court until 1634. The same year he was one of ten persons chosen to "order the affairs of the plantation." His first service began on 23 Sept. 1630, when he was chosen Constable of Dorchester. Soon after, he was fined 5 pounds and sentenced to be jailed until his fine was paid, for marrying Clement Briggs & Joane Allen. He did not pay the fine, nor was he jailed, and in 1638 the fine was rescinded. Never the less, he was regarded as a man of "Prominence, property & social distinction," and was referred to as "ancient, which signified Ensign or standard bearer in a military company.


When the religious dissention began in Dorchester, Thomas, along with Henry Wolcott, Mr. Newberry, Roger Ludlow and John Mason, were appointed to establish a new settlement on the Connecticut River, near the Plymouth Trading Post. These men defrayed most of the expenses of the migration, and the new plantation. This settlement became known as Windsor, Conn. Some of the people moved in 1635 and the others followed in 1636. In that year Thomas was chosen to establish the boundaries of Windsor. He was elected to the court in 1638 and served until 1648, during which tie he was elected 11 times. 23
