Silver Star Medal Award

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 8, 1918 (amended by act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to First Lieutenant (Armor) Ronald Dickerson Hines, United States Army, for gallantry in action while engaged in military operations in the Republic of Vietnam, on 26 April 1964. As an Advisor to an Armored Cavalry Squadron of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, Lieutenant Hines rendered invaluable assistance, sound advice, and encouragement to the Vietnamese elements during an encounter with hostile forces which resulted in a successful operation. Then, as the Vietnamese troop commander was reorganizing his forces and was suddenly felled by automatic small arms fire from a concealed position, Lieutenant Hines unhesitatingly left the safety of the command personnel carrier, raced through the gun fire to render assistance to his Vietnamese counterpart and, upon reaching him, was mortally wounded himself. His personal example, unselfish actions, and courage was an inspiration to the Squadron and encouraged them to pursue their efforts in the defense of their homeland. Lieutenant Hines' conspicuous gallantry is in the highest traditions of the United States Army and reflects great credit upon himself and the military service.

Final Mission of 1LT Ronald D. Hines

1LT Ronald D. Hines was a Ranger-qualified armored reconnaissance operations and training staff officer assigned to SD-6625, Army Element, MAAGV. On April 24, 1964, 1LT Hines was killed during fighting in the vicinity of Kien Long near the southern tip of Vietnam during a battle between ARVN forces and two Viet Cong battalions. 1LT Hines was accompanying an ARVN patrol in M113 armored personnel carriers (APC) when they ran into heavy Viet Cong fire three miles northeast of Kien Long. The ARVN forces pushed forward and seized the first line of VC foxholes. Bogged down in heavy terrain, the crews dismounted their M113’s and advanced on foot against an enemy held tree line 150 yards ahead. When the ARVN commander was hit in the left knee, 1LT Hines dragged him into a foxhole and then helped carry him back to their APC under fire. He was struck by a bullet in the chest one yard from the APC. He died instantly. [Taken from coffeltdatabase.org and “Soldier Died a Hero’s Death.” Pacific Stars & Stripes, May 4, 1964]
