McWhorter (December 7, 1918 December 5, 1944) was a United States Army soldier and a recipient of the United States military's highest decoration the Medal of Honor for his actions in World War II.McWhorter joined the Army from his birthplace of Liberty, South Carolina, and by December 5, 1944 was serving as a private first class in Company M, 126th Infantry Regiment, 32nd Infantry Division. On that day, at Leyte in the Philippines, he smothered the blast of an enemy-thrown explosive with his body, sacrificing himself to protect the man next to him.
