Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Hollis Gregory Miller, 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, Sir

Curt Carter

Silver Star Citation

Silver Star



Awarded for actions during the Vietnam War



The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Specialist Fourth Class Hollis Gregory Miller, United States Army, for gallantry in action while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force on 18 June 1969 while serving as a team leader with the Aero Rifle Platoon, Air Cavalry Troop, 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, in the Republic of Vietnam. On this date when the troop commander's helicopter was shot down by enemy fire, the Aero Rifle Platoon was flown to the area to secure the downed aircraft and hold off an enemy assault. After the platoon had made contact with the enemy force and had begun an attack, Specialist Miller spotted a heavily-fortified hostile position that was halting the friendly advance. Disregarding the enemy fusillade, he single-handedly assaulted the bunker and killed its two occupants. As the platoon continued to maneuver toward the helicopter, Specialist Miller observed three more hostile soldiers and began moving to a position from which he could effectively engage them. However, he was spotted and mortally wounded by a burst of enemy automatic weapons fire. Specialist Four Miller's courage and unwavering devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
