Silver Star Medal Award

PFC Richard J. Conrardy

CITATION:
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 Richard John Conrardy, United States Army, for gallantry in action in the Republic of Vietnam on 2 July 1970. Private Conrardy distinguished himself while serving as a Medical Aidman in Company C, 2d Battalion (Airmobile), 506th Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division (Airmobile), during combat operations in Thua Thien Province, Republic of Vietnam. While set up in a night defensive position, Private Conrardy's unit came under attack by a force of North Vietnamese Army sappers, who breached the perimeter at one point. When the command post came under a particularly intense assault, the platoon leader was seriously wounded, and Private Conrardy immediately abandoned his covered position to aid the wounded man. Moving through the enemy barrage, Private Conrardy had just reached the casualty when he was mortally wounded by an enemy satchel charge. His actions were an inspiration to his fellow soldiers. Private Conrardy's personal bravery and devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.

Live Brother Live!

Live Brother Live!

I sit here thinking about my brothers, both young and old,
you stood for us in distant lands, your stories yet untold.

You came from all around; North, South, East and West,
proved to those who challenged, you're the very best.

You returned to your home; back to family and friends
but deep within your soul; the war will never end.

You relive it at night; within the fog of your dream,
the memories, and pains of war, sometimes so extreme.

Here at home you can't forget, the brothers left behind,
memories of those men; plays always in your mind.

Questions invade your daily thoughts; even as you work,
if I had done things different, what if, always seems to lurk.

But those who did not return, no different than me and you,
what would our fallen brothers want and expect for us to do?

Live well my brother, live for me; for I am alive through you,
build great things and live for me, in everything you do.

Laugh, love and live your life, as the dear friend I knew,
for as long as you continue brother, I will continue too!
