    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 Warrant Officer (W-1) Nicholas Richard Alexander (ASN: W-3158732), United States Army, for gallantry in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force while serving with the 118th Assault Helicopter Company, 1st Aviation Brigade, in the Republic of Vietnam on 27 November 1968. Warrant Officer Alexander distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions while serving as aircraft commander and fire team leader of a UH-1C helicopter gunship. He responded to a plea from a hamlet which was under enemy attack. Warrant Officer Alexander made repeated gun runs on the enemy positions, despite a barrage of enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire. Friendly elements were inserted in a landing zone south of the hamlet and immediately received murderous enemy fire from the village. Warrant Officer Alexander courageously decided to go alone to the aid of the beleaguered infantrymen. As he placed his aircraft in a dive directed at the enemy positions, the aircraft began to receive intense enemy fire. His aircraft received several hits, one of which caused it to crash and burn amid the enemy positions. Warrant Officer Alexander's gallantry in action at the cost of his life was instrumental in saving the lives of many friendly soldiers. His actions were 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, 1st Aviation Brigade, General Orders No. 8403 (December 22, 1968)

    Action Date: November 27, 1968

    Service: Army

    Rank: Warrant Officer

    Company: 118th Assault Helicopter Company

    Dear CWO Nicholas Richar Alexander, 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
