Navy Cross Citation

Robert Allan Federowski

DATE OF BIRTH: 22-Nov-48

HOME OF RECORD:
Lansing, Illinois

Navy Cross
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Marine Corps
Rank: Corporal
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 1st Marine Division (Rein.) FMF
GENERAL ORDERS:
Authority: Navy Department Board of Decorations and Medals
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Navy Cross (Posthumously) to Corporal Robert Allan Federowski (MCSN: 2204671), United States Marine Corps, for extraordinary heroism while serving as a Squad Leader with Company D, First Battalion, Fifth Marines, FIRST Marine Division (Reinforced), Fleet Marine Force, in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On the evening of 24 May 1968, Corporal Federowski's unit had established an ambush on a suspected enemy infiltration route in Thua Thien Province and became heavily engaged with a numerically superior North Vietnamese Army force. Ignoring the hostile small-arms fire and B-40 rockets impacting around him, Corporal Federowski boldly moved about the hazardous terrain, shouting words of encouragement to his men and skillfully directing their fire. Suddenly, an enemy hand grenade landed near him and several other Marines. With complete disregard for his own safety, Corporal Federowski fearlessly placed himself between the grenade and his comrades. As he attempted to hurl it away from his position, the grenade detonated, and he was mortally wounded. His bold initiative and sincere concern for the welfare of his comrades inspired all who observed him and saved the lives of several fellow Marines. By his courage, aggressive fighting spirit, and selfless devotion to duty, Corporal Federowski upheld the highest traditions of the United States Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear CPL Robert Allan Federowski, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice 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. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, Sir

Curt Carter
