AWARDS AND CITATIONS

Silver Star

Awarded for actions during the Vietnam War

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 Sergeant [then Specialist Fourth Class] Harold Philip Fesperman (ASN: 12815841), United States Army, for gallantry in action while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force while serving with Company C, 2d Battalion (Airmobile), 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile), in the republic of Vietnam. Specialist Fourth Class Fesperman distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous action on 14 February 1970 while serving as a Rifleman in the Republic of Vietnam. While traveling through thick jungle, the point element came across a superior enemy force which placed a heavy volume of mortar and automatic weapons fire upon the company. When he saw that several of his comrades were wounded, with complete disregard for his own safety, Specialist Fourth Class Fesperman exposed himself to the intense enemy fire as he pushed forward in front of the wounded personnel, drawing the enemy fire upon himself and contributing greatly to the defeat of the enemy forces. Specialist Fourth Class Fesperman's gallant action was in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
