原文:

U.S. Rep. John Joyce announced on Aug 6 that he has introduced legislation that would award the United States' highest military honor to a World War II hero from Bedford County.

Joyce's House Resolution 7835 would authorize President Donald Trump to award the Medal of Honor to Lt. Eric Fisher Wood Jr., who died during the Battle of the Bulge. After becoming separated from his unit, Wood gathered a group of allies and led a guerrilla campaign that is credited with killing more than 200 Nazi soldiers.

When he was found dead in the forest outside the village of Meyerode, Belgium, in January 1945, he was surrounded by the bodies of seven dead Nazis; it's believed he killed all of them before succumbing to his injuries.

喬伊斯的眾議院第7835號決議,授權由川普總統將榮譽勳章,授予在「突出部之役」陣亡的伍德中尉。伍德在與所屬單位失聯後,召集一群盟友並發起一場游擊戰,經認定,此戰殺死了200多名納粹士兵。

1945年1月,他被發現死在比利時梅耶羅德村外的森林裡,在他周遭有7具納粹分子的屍體;據信,他在受傷臨死前,就先殺光這7個納粹分子。
