Fred Hargesheimer was a reconnaissance pilot who was shot down over the island of New Britain, which was inhabited by Japanese forces and was being skipped as the target of an invasion during Operation Cartwheel. The natives took him in and hid him from the Japanese after he spent a month alone in the wilderness.

He was eventually rescued, and that could have been that. But Fred went and earned money to give something back to the people who had saved his life, and dedicated his life to that cause. The article linked above tells the story well, and this man is an example of one who could have been declared a hero for simply fighting for his country, but truly became a hero when he helped all of the people of that island afterward.

Farewell, Sir.
