[STC002351] Edward “Butch” O’Hare is honored with the naming of the airport that bears his name in Chicago. O’Hare was a naval aviator who won the Medal of Honor for holding off a formation of heavy bombers that were attacking his aircraft carrier on February 20, 1942. Later on in the war, in 1943, O’Hare was leading the very first ever nighttime fighter strike on a group of Japanese torpedo bombers when he was shot down and died. In 1949, the airport that was once known as Orchard Depot Airport in Chicago was renamed O’Hare International Airport in his honor.
