Silver Star Citation

Edward S. Estes

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Marine Corps
Rank: Lance Corporal
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 1st Marine Division (Rein.), FMF
GENERAL ORDERS:

CITATION:

The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Lance Corporal Edward S. Estes (MCSN: 2329731), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as a Squad Leader with Company C, First Battalion, Fifth Marines, FIRST Marine Division (Rein.), FMF, in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam on 13 February 1968. During Operation HUE CITY, Lance Corporal Estes' platoon was assigned the mission of seizing an enemy occupied objective. As the platoon neared the designated area, they were taken under intense enemy automatic, semi-automatic, small-arms, mortar and anti-tank rocket fire from a numerically superior enemy force. Quickly assessing the situation, he moved his men to the point of heaviest contact and deployed them in the most advantageous firing positions. Braving the enemy fire, two Marines attempted to cross the street and one was seriously wounded and fell in an exposed position. Realizing the danger to the injured man, Lance Corporal Estes, with complete disregard for his own safety, made two daring attempts to rescue the man but each time was forced back to his position by the intense enemy fire. Directing his squad to deliver a heavy volume of suppressive fire, he fearlessly started across the fire-swept street for a third time and, as he neared the casualty, was wounded and knocked to the ground. Ignoring his injuries, he steadfastly continued his determined efforts and, upon reaching the casualty, was mortally wounded by the intense enemy fire. By his bold initiative, gallant fighting spirit and loyal devotion to duty, Lance Corporal Estes reflected great credit upon himself and the Marine Corps and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.
