Silver Star Citation

Harold E. Morrow

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Marine Corps
Rank: Gunnery Sergeant
Battalion: 3d Battalion
Division: 3d Marine Division (Rein.), FMF
GENERAL ORDERS:

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Gunnery Sergeant Harold E. Morrow (MCSN: 1136878), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as the Gunnery Sergeant with Company M, Third Battalion, Twenty-Sixth Marines, THIRD Marine Division, in the Republic of Vietnam on 21 July 1967. Gunnery Sergeant Morrow was engaged as a member of a company search and destroy operation against North Vietnamese Army elements. The point platoon came under extremely heavy automatic and semiautomatic weapons fire from an estimated reinforced North Vietnamese Army platoon. Upon receiving word that the platoon commander, platoon sergeant, and one squad leader had become casualties, Gunnery Sergeant Morrow immediately volunteered to take command of the first platoon. Moving forward under extremely intense enemy fire, he reached the unit and assumed command. With full knowledge of the hazards involved, and with complete disregard for his own safety, he repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire while directing the fight and supervising removal of the casualties to a helicopter landing zone for evacuation. Moving from man to man, he inspired his men with dynamic leadership and courageous fighting spirit until he was mortally wounded. As a result of his daring actions and loyal devotion to duty, many Marine lives were saved. Gunnery Sergeant Morrow's outstanding and selfless efforts in behalf of others served to inspire all who observed him and to uphold the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.

For GYSGT Harold Eugene MORROW, USMC...Valencia's bravest hero, who gave his all for America!!!!!!!

He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.
In honesty, in affection, he told us so.
He loved us so.
Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.
With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.
He was our defender, and he kept us free!
He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!
He loved us so, and we should know.
For we loved him so.
Sergeant Morrow, you were the very essence of DUTY!...HONOR!...and COUNTRY! You had been there and done that in Vietnam! You were one brave man who did brave deeds for our America! You fought for the right without question or pause! Your name and fame are the BIRTHRIGHT of EVERY American citizen! In your youth and strength...your love and loyalty...you had given all that mortality can give to defend liberty everywhere! Valencia is very proud of you! You sacrificed your life so that freedom and justice may live! You had lived up to the motto of the Corps!---SEMPER FIDELIS!---and to the code of conduct and chivalry of those who guard this beloved land!...an ideal SO NOBLE that it arouses in all of us a sense of pride, and yet, of humility! I strongly and honestly believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I greatly and immensely admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the other two being Walton-on-Thames's own Julie Andrews, England's musical queen, and London's own Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England, would be very proud of your service to America and the sacrifices you made to keep us and our country free! Well done, Sergeant! Be thou at peace. SEMPER FI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
