Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Edward David Crow, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Distinguished Service Cross Citation

Distinguished Service Cross

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 act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Sergeant Edward David Crow (ASN: US-53450463), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam, while serving with Company B, 3d Battalion, 22d Infantry, 3d Brigade, 25th Infantry Division. Sergeant Crow distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 12 April 1968 while serving with an infantry company during an enemy attack on its position. His unit was in a night defensive position when it became the target of a mortar and ground assault. Initially, the intensity of the enemy fire forced Sergeant Crow to abandon his mortar position, but he quickly regrouped his men and personally led a counterattack to regain it. His men began receiving enemy machine gun fire when they had advanced to within fifteen meters of the weapon site. Ignoring the fusillade, Sergeant Crow continued towards his objective and destroyed the machine gun with hand grenades. After successfully regaining the mortar emplacement, he fired illumination rounds to expose the enemy in the darkness and placed effective suppressive fire upon the insurgents which forced their withdrawal. Sergeant Crow's extraordinary heroism 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.
