Bronze Star Medal (First Oak Leaf Cluster) with ā€œVā€ Device General Orders #12594 17 Oct 69

For heroism, not involving participation in aerial flight, in connection with military operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. Sergeant Danison distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous action on 13 September 1969, while serving as squad leader with Company B, 2d Battalion (Airmobile), 8th Cavalry during a reconnaissance mission in Tay Ninh Province, Republic of Vietnam. As Company B was pushing through thick jungle, the point element was hit by an unknown sized enemy element, well concealed and armed with small arms, automatic weapons and rockets. During the initial contact several members of the point element were seriously wounded. With complete disregard for his own personal safety, Sergeant Danison, (illegible) assisted his platoon leader in securing a position from which they could engage the enemy positions. They succeeded in keeping the enemy pinned down long enough for the company medics to move up, treat the wounded, and evacuate them to a more secure position. As the last man was being pulled back, the enemy suddenly launched a determined assault toward the point element. During the ensuing fire fight, Sergeant Danison was fatally wounded. His display of personal bravery and devotion to duty was in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service, and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
