Silver Star Citation

Manville L. Barb

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Army
Rank: Second Lieutenant
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 25th Infantry Division
GENERAL ORDERS:

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 pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Second Lieutenant Manville L. Barb, United States Army, for heroic actions on 28 October 1967, while serving as a platoon leader with Company A, 1st Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, on a combat operation in the Republic of Vietnam. Lieutenant Barb's unit assaulted a strongly fortified Viet Cong base camp in the Boi Loi Woods and sustained numerous casualties during the assault. Lieutenant Barb led his men on a second assault in an attempt to eliminate a key enemy bunker which was inflicting heavy casualties upon the friendly forces. Although aware that the position was covered by enemy sniper fire, he personally led his platoon forward while skillfully deploying his men into an assault line. In the gathering dusk, Lieutenant Barb initiated the assault by firing his weapon and throwing hand grenades upon the hostile emplacements. Completely disregarding the intense enemy fire, Lieutenant Barb continued to move forward while encouraging his men and directing their fire. Having obtained a position within twenty feet of the enemy emplacements, Lieutenant Barb was mortally wounded by the intense hostile fire. Due to Lieutenant Barb's valorous actions and outstanding leadership, the enemy positions were overrun and the mission successfully completed. Lieutenant Barb's personal bravery, aggressiveness, and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, the 25th Infantry Division, and the United States Army.
