AWARDS AND CITATIONS

Silver Star


Awarded for actions during the Vietnam War

The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private First Class Joseph F. Convery, Jr. (MCSN: 2347401), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as a Fire Team Leader with Company F, Second Battalion, Third Marines, THIRD Marine Division (Rein.), FMF, in connection with combat operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On the morning of 6 February 1968, during the enemy's TET Offensive, Company F advanced to relieve an Army of the Republic of Vietnam unit heavily engaged with a North Vietnamese Army battalion entrenched in a small village south of DaNang. Throughout the ensuing day-long battle, he aggressively led his men against the enemy as his team often operated as an independent unit. Late in the afternoon, Private First Class Convery positioned his fire team for an assault against an enemy recoilless rifle position. Completely disregarding his own safety, he continuously exposed himself to hostile fire as he aggressively led his team in attacking the emplacement. Although mortally wounded just as his men seized the enemy recoilless rifle position, he personally accounted for eight North Vietnamese confirmed killed during the assault. By his heroic actions, decisive leadership and selfless devotion to duty, Private First Class Convery upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.
