Scott 91kNorman Scott, born 10 August 1889 in Indianapolis, Ind., was appointed midshipman 17 June 1907, graduated from the Naval Academy in 1911. In December 1917, the future Rear Admiral Norman Scott was the Executive Officer of USS Jacob Jones (DD-61) when she was sunk by a German submarine and was commended for his performance at that time. He received his first command, a group of eagle boats, in 1919. During peacetime, he commanded Paul Jones and Pensacola. Commissioned Rear Admiral 16 June 1942, he commanded a strike force in the Guadalcanal campaign. On the night of 12/13 November 1942, he led his force against a numerically superior Japanese force in a desperate struggle to prevent the Japanese from turning back our first offensive action in the Pacific. He was killed aboard his flagship, USS Atlanta (CL-51), during the action, and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his intrepid leadership. Photo #: NH 102454. Rear Admiral Norman Scott, USN, Halftone reproduction of a 1942 photograph, published in "Medal of Honor, 1861-1945, The Navy", page 257. Rear Admiral Scott was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for "extraordinary heroism and conspicuous intrepidity" during the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, 13 November 1942.
