Ben L. Salomon was drafted as an army dentist during WW2. He eventually became a regimental surgeon. While serving in the Pacific theater, four Japanese soldiers stormed his tank and killed the soldier he was treating. In a rage, Salomon shot two of them, kicked a knife out of another’s hands, and headbutted the last. He took up a machine gun and started mowing down enemies. Next day he was found dead after being shot 70 times with nearly 100 enemy troops dead in front of him.
