Capt. Larry Taylor, Medal of Honor recipient and Signal Mountain resident, dies at 81

Larry Taylor, who received the Medal of Honor in September for his daring 1968 helicopter rescue during the Vietnam War, died Sunday at his Signal Mountain home, according to a news release from the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Taylor, a retired Army captain and Chattanooga native, was 81. A cause of death was not released.

President Joe Biden presented Taylor the medal — the military’s highest honor — at the White House on Sept. 5.

“Larry’s mission on this earth is now over and he is forever safe and indeed home in God’s forever attack helicopter base camp,” retired Army Gen. Burwell “B. B.” Bell, who worked on the petition to get Taylor the medal, said in a news release.

Taylor’s remains will be buried at the Chattanooga National Military Cemetery, near those of other Chattanooga-area recipients Charles Coolidge and Desmond Doss, Bell said.
