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 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.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear 1LT Ronald Dickerson Hines, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir



Curt Carter
