John William Haas

-  Born:  14 June 1907 Sioux City, Iowa
-  Member of the famed Torpedo Squadron 3 - Chief Machinist and pilot
-  ""In the face of tremendous anti-aircraft fire and Japanese fighter opposition, Chief Haas joined his squadron in pressing home the attack on enemy forces until it became relatively certain that in order to accomplish his mission he would sacrifice his life. Undeterred by the grave possibilities of such a hazardous offensive, he carried on with extreme disregard for his personal safety until the gallant planes of Torpedo Squadron 3 had diverted Japanese planes and contributed importantly to the victory. For his self-sacrifice and valiant fighting effort, Chief Machinist Haas was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross." S5,
-  Death Date:   4 June 1942 during the Battle of Midway
