Medal of Honor Recipient...read citation below


REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM

14 MAY 1968



For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life
above and beyond the call of duty. PFC Fous distinguished himself at
the risk of his life while serving as a rifleman with Company E. PFC Fous
was participating in a reconnaissance-in-force mission when his unit
formed its perimeter defense for the night. PFC Fous, together with three
other American soldiers, occupied a position in a thickly vegetated area
facing a woodline. PFC Fous detected three Viet Cong manoeuvering
toward his position and, after alerting the other men, directed accurate
fire upon the enemy soldiers, silencing two of them. The third Viet Cong
soldier managed to escape in the thick vegetation after throwing a hand
grenade into PFC Fous' position. Without hesitation, PFC Fous shouted a
warning to his comrades and leaped upon the lethal explosive, absorbing
the blast with his body to save the lives of the three men in the area at the
sacrifice of his life. PFC Fous' extraordinary heroism at the cost of his life
were in keeping with the highest traditions of the miltary service and
reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James William Fous, 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
