Silver Star Citation

Dan Willie Archer

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Army
Rank: Private First Class
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 25th Infantry Division
GENERAL ORDERS:
Headquarters, 4th Infantry Division, General Orders No. 2496 (August 11, 1967)
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 Dan Willie Archer, Jr. (ASN: US-53811374), United States Army, for gallantry in action in connection with military operations against an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. On 15 July 1967 Private First Class Archer distinguished himself while serving as a Rifleman in Company C, 1st Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, on a search and destroy mission south of Duc Pho. As the company advanced through thickly vegetated terrain, the enemy opened fire from a concealed bunker. Without hesitation, Private First Class Archer moved forward with his machine gun team to attack the enemy position. More enemy troops in other positions began firing, and soon the entire company was engaged. The Company Commander deployed the company and launched an assault. When he moved forward to lead the assault, he was taken under fire by the enemy in the bunker. Seeing this, Private First Class Archer charged the enemy position through intense hostile fire, drawing it toward himself and away from the Company Commander and the men behind him. Though seriously wounded, he was able to destroy the enemy position with a grenade. Private First Class Archer succumbed to the wounds he sustained in his daring assault, but his heroic actions were instrumental in the elimination of the enemy force. His exceptional 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.
