Joe Foss, South Dakota. Winner Against the Odds: On 15 January 1943, Marine Captain Joe Foss shot down his third Japanese plane for the day. That made his total twenty-six victories. He wasn’t always so successful. But neither the Japanese nor tropical disease could defeat him and in 1955, at age 39, he became South Dakota’s youngest governor. By Tom Mullen
