We Will Remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

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 First Lieutenant (Infantry) Walter Ralph Daley (ASN: 0-5326549), United States Army, for gallantry in action. First Lieutenant Daly distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 31 January 1967, while serving as a Platoon Leader with Company A, 2d Battalion, 12th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile), during a search and destroy operation near Bong Son, Republic of Vietnam. During the night of 31 January 1967, an enemy force of unknown size launched a savage attack against Lieutenant Daley's platoon. As the Viet Cong assaulted on three sides with automatic weapons, Lieutenant Daley braved the withering fire to crawl to each of his men, rallying them to repel the enemy attack. Lieutenant Daley constantly exposed himself to fire tracer rounds into the Viet Cong positions, pinpointing the enemy's locations for his men. Lieutenant Daley then began throwing grenades at the enemy, continuing to inspire and encourage his men by his gallant and aggressive leadership until he was mortally wounded by hostile fire. Lieutenant Daley's outstanding display of personal bravery and devotion to duty stands in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service, and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear 1LT Walter Ralph Daley, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

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

Curt Carter
