Silver Star Medal Award

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Captain Marvin Nelson Lindsey, United States Air Force, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force over North Vietnam on 29 June 1965. On that date, Captain Lindsey was assigned a mission to obtain pre-strike and bomb damage assessment photography of vital target areas. Flying at low altitude in adverse weather, Captain Lindsey displayed a high sense of duty and a complete disregard for his personal safety when he pressed on to complete his photo run although his aircraft had been severely damaged by ground fire. The gallantry and devotion to duty displayed by Captain Lindsey have reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

Everyday.

Every day I wake up with a reminder. Every night I before I go to sleep a reminder. It's worn on my wrist everyday. The sacrifice you made. It is an honor to share your story. The sacrifice you made. As long as I live , so will you. You got my word on that. Respectfully. Deo Vindice.

Remember and Honor

I was in Air Force basic training 1994 when I bought my bracelet honoring Col. Lindsey from a vendor at the PX. I thought I was in big trouble with my T.I. when he found it. He took me aside and told me Never forget this brave man. Honor Col. Lindsey and pray for him to come home. Thank you Col. Lindsey for your service, and I pray for your return home. You sir are not forgotten.
