761st Tank Battalion Sergeant Ruben Rivers was killed in November 1944, after his tank was shelled in northeastern France. A vital part of General George Patton's Saar Campaign, Rivers had already been awarded the Silver Star before his death. Rivers did not receive the Medal of Honor, however, until a Congressional review commissioned in the 1990s determined that he had been overlooked.
