The Famous and the Infamous members
of the Legion of frontiersmen

Some of these people are not necessarily the decorated heroic individuals we hear about.  Their stories are either written by them, their families, or by co-workers, so are only as good as can be written unless history prevails through documentation

In this list we in no way make claim that these individuals were members of the Legion when they were decorated, but at some time in their lives did become a member of the Legion, and in this way we list them here along with their feats as an honour to their service to the world at the time.
