Yes! Dorporal Danny Schoonover did receive the Medal of Honor for action on Pork Chop Hill (officially listed as "Near Sokkogae, Korea. July 8 to 10, 1953. I finally found out on the web, under "Medal of Honor, Korea". While finding Danny, I also noticed Pvt. Charles H. Barker, of the 17th Regiment, 7th Infantry Division. I didn't know him. It appears he and Danny were on the same hill at the same time, or close to it. He was awarded the Medal for action June 4. Danny was awarded the Medal for action June 8-10, 1953.
