Last Known Activity
On December 6, 1946, President Truman presented MSG Llewellyn Chilson the most medals for valor ever given to any armed force member in the history of the military. The national Archives list MSG Lewellyn Chilson as "the most decorated soldier in the history of the military".
On this day President Harry Truman pinned on MSG Chilson.
Three Army Distinguished Service Cross  at one time. A military feat never repeated to date,
Two Silver Star Medals
Legion of Merit Medal
Bronze Star Medal.
Yet to this date MSG Llewellyn Chilson goes unknown to the country his so gallantry served. History books are void of his name. Please lets try and remember this gret warrior. Please visit the link to see his medals and citations.
