Willis Augustus Lee won several medals for the US in team shooting events in the Antwerp Olympics of 1920.  He later became Rear Admiral in the US Navy, and commanded the American force that won the 2nd Naval Battle of Guadalcanal in 1942, where Kirishima was sunk by USS Washington, in what proved to be the decisive engagement of the naval war around the island.
