    AWARDS AND CITATIONS

    Silver Star

    Awarded for actions during the Vietnam War

    The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private First Class Howard Lynn Bartley (ASN: US-54402120), United States Army, for gallantry in action. Private First Class Bartley distinguished himself by heroic actions on 1 November 1967, while serving as point man with Company C, 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, in the Republic of Vietnam. Private Bartley was walking point through dense undergrowth in the Boi Loi Woods when he was fired upon by enemy automatic weapons positions. Without regard for his own life, he immediately returned the fire to alert his platoon to the impending danger which enabled them to withdraw to safety. Private Bartley continued to expose himself in order to return the fire until he was mortally wounded. Through Private Bartley's courageous efforts his fellow soldiers were saved. Private Bartley's uncommon bravery, aggressiveness, and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
    General Orders: Headquarters, 25th Infantry Division, General Orders No. 4758 (December 10, 1967)

    Dear PFC Howard Lynn Bartley, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
