Silver Star Medal Citation

Wayne Paul Moore

AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Marine Corps
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 3d Marine Division
GENERAL ORDERS:

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Lance Corporal Wayne Paul Moore (MCSN: 2289947), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy in action while serving as a Rifleman with Company B, First Battalion, Twenty-Sixth Marines, THIRD Marine Division, in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On 30 march 1968, Company B became heavily engaged with an estimated North Vietnamese Army battalion entrenched in a fortified bunker complex near the Khe Sahn Combat Base. When his squad became pinned down by intense automatic weapons and mortar fire in the initial moments of the fire fight, Lance Corporal Moore unhesitatingly moved across twenty-five meters of open terrain and aggressively assaulted an enemy bunker, destroying two hostile positions and killing two North Vietnamese soldiers. As the Marines launched an attack, he repeatedly disregarded his own safety to assist the wounded and provide suppressive fire for the advancing men. While he was maneuvering across the open terrain fearlessly attempting to draw the hostile fire away form his squad, Lance Corporal Moore was mortally wounded. By his courage, aggressive fighting spirit and selfless devotion to duty, Lance Corporal Moore inspired all who observed him and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life in the service of his country.

Remembering an American Hero

Dear LCPL Wayne Paul Moore, sir,

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for the ultimate sacrifice that you 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. And please know that men and women like you have stepped forward to defend our country yet again, showing the same love for country and their fellow Americans that you did- you would be proud.

With respect, and the best salute that a civilian can muster for you.

Curt Carter
