Distinguished Service Cross Citation

Howard Eugene Beagle

Distinguished Service Cross
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Army
Rank: Specialist Fourth Class
Battalion: 3d Battalion
Division: 9th Infantry Division
GENERAL ORDERS:
Headquarters, U.S. Army, Vietnam, General Orders No. 2428 (May 27, 1967)
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918 (amended by act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Specialist Fourth Class Howard Eugene Beagle (ASN: US-51589752), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam, while serving with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3d Battalion, 60th Infantry, 9th Infantry Division. Specialist Four Beagle distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 11 April 1967 while serving as medical corpsman during a search and destroy mission near Tan An. Specialist Beagle's unit was crossing dry rice paddies, still 200 meters from it's objective, when a Viet Cong force initiated a barrage of intense fire. As one of the men fell wounded, Specialist Beagle raced through the hail of fire to his side and began to treat his critical wounds. Soon another call for medical help was made. Oblivious of the outburst of fire his movement drew, Specialist Beagle ran 75 meters across the field to the new casualty. he pulled the soldier to a partially protected position behind a rice paddy dike, but at times was forced to shield the man's body with his own while he treated him. Since the hostile fire became very intense, he grabbed the wounded man's weapon and tried to silence some of the hostile positions. When another soldier came to relieve him, he finished his treatment, then ran again across the open paddies to the first casualty. As medical evacuation helicopters arrived, Specialist Beagle once more crossed the fields of fire to ensure that the wounded men were safely evacuated. Some of his comrades began to feel the effects of their strenuous exertions in the afternoon heat. Specialist Beagle assembled them and began to build a shelter to protect them fro the sun. As he stood up to secure a corner of the shelter, he was mortally wounded. Specialist Four Beagle extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
