Final Mission of CPT Harold J. Faldermeyer

Final Mission of CPT Harold J. Faldermeyer
CPT Harold J. Faldermeyer was a military advisor assigned to the 21st Division Combat Assistance Team (DCAT), Advisory Team 51, providing assistance to the Army of the Republic of Vietnam. On May 11, 1972, CPT Faldermeyer distinguished himself while serving as Advisor, 2nd Battalion, 32d Regiment, 21st Infantry Division, Army of the Republic of Vietnam. On this date, the 2nd Battalion, which had been in heavy contact for two days without re-supply, was on an offensive operation against a firmly entrenched North Vietnamese Army Regiment to open Highway 13 to relieve the tightening ring of enemy forces around the beleaguered friendly forces at An Loc. Faldermeyer, with disregard for his own safety, repeatedly throughout the day, exposed himself to enemy fire to direct a series of deadly effective tactical airstrikes against the enemy positions. At approximately 1030 hours, the 2nd Battalion was attacked by at least one NVA reinforced battalion. Faldermeyer, as the ground controller for U.S. air assets, with single-minded determination to accomplish the mission and at great risk to his life, moved under heavy enemy mortar fire across Highway 13, to a vantage point from which to direct and coordinate friendly airstrikes. His position was extremely perilous as he was exposed on three sides with the remainder of his unit across Highway 13. Despite intense enemy mortar and rocket fire, Faldermeyer remained at this position. Faldermeyer's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army. He was posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. [Taken from CPT Faldermeyer's Distinguished Service Cross citation]
