Born in Memphis and a graduate of Bartlett High School,
Singleton was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor by Congress for heroism
during combat in Vietnam. Serving in the 3rd Marine Division, on March 24, 1967,
he charged through heavy enemy fire to rescue several injured Marines. He then
forced his way through a hedgerow and drove the enemy from their position. His
supreme sacrifice resulted in the saving of many lives and demonstrated his
devotion to duty, his fellow man, and his country.
