    He commanded the 8th Infantry Division in WW2 and the IX Corps in Korea. He died in action from a heart attack in Korea. He is buried at West Point in upstate New York. He was also the commander there for a while. The General was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal with 2 Oak Leaf Clusters, the Silver Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Legion of Merit, the Bronze Star with Oak Leaf Cluster, the Combat Infantryman's Badge, the Korean Service Medal, the United Nations Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Korean Presidential Unit Citation and the Republic of Korea War Service Medal.
