Last Known Activity
The Battle of Bairoko was a battle between American and Imperial Japanese Army and Navy forces on 20 July 1943 during the New Georgia Campaign in the Solomon Islands during the Pacific War. In the battle, U.S. Marine Raiders‚??supported by two U.S. Army infantry battalions‚??attacked a Japanese garrison guarding the port of Bairoko on the Dragons Peninsula on New Georgia. The day-long assault on well-prepared Japanese defensive positions by the Americans was unsuccessful. After calling-off the assault, the Americans withdrew to nearby Enogai. The American forces remained in the Enogai area until the end of the New Georgia Campaign. The Japanese used Bairoko to resupply and reinforce their troops who were guarding an airfield at Munda Point on New Georgia. After the U.S. and its allies successfully captured the airfield, the Japanese evacuated New Georgia and abandoned Bairoko on 24 August. American losses were 50 KIA.

  Silver Star
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private Everett Bryant (MCSN: 472392), United States Marine Corps Reserve, for gallantry in action while serving with Company D, 4th Raider Battalion, at Bairoko Harbor, 20 July 1943. Never concerned with his own safety when he could strike a damaging blow at the enemy, he was persistent and audacious in the operation of his machine gun, bringing exceptionally effective fire to bear on strong Japanese positions. Even when he suffered a severe abdominal wound he refused evacuation and died several hours later, still manning the weapon with which he so heroically aided his company's defense.
Action Date: July 20, 1943
