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 Specialist Fourth Class Curtis James Kaupp, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in connection with military operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. Specialist Fourth Class Kaupp distinguished himself by intrepid actions on 21 November 1968 while serving with Company A, 2d Battalion (Airmobile), 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division. When his unit's forward operational base came under an intense enemy attack, Specialist Kaupp continuously held his position against the repeated attacks, enabling the remainder of his unit to reorganize and repel the attack. His valiant efforts prevented the enemy from overrunning the forward operational base, but in doing so, Specialist Kaupp was mortally wounded. His gallant action was in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service, and reflects great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 Curtis James Kaupp, 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
