Silver Star Medal Award

First Lieutenant (Lester Neal) Moulton distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 25 May 1970, while serving as Company Commander, Company B, 1st Battalion (Airborne), 503d Infantry, 173d Airborne Brigade (Separate). During a combat assault in the Crescent Mountains a fire team came in contact with an enemy force of unknown size. Immediately requesting helicopters to lift reinforcements to the area and calling in air strikes and gunships to soften the enemy for attack, Lieutenant Moulton led the company in a combat assault into the area. Suddenly the company began to receive intense machinegun and small arms fire and several men were wounded. Moving through the bullet swept area without regard for his own safety, he ordered his right flank to maneuver to the enemy's flank and overrun the enemy position. When he saw that several of his men were endangering their lives by trying to help the wounded he ordered them to remain in place. He then personally moved to one of the wounded men and dragged him to safety. As he returned to help a second man he was mortally wounded. First Lieutenant Moulton's extraordinary heroism and 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.

LT. Moulton Sir, You would remember me as Porky. My nickname . I served with you just a short time as I DEROSed March 8 1970. I’m knew you long enough to hear the stories of a proud Husband and Father. I also heard that you were a legend in your OCS class.
We may have been the only fathers of 2 there at that point.
You will Never be Forgotten Sir. Your men, those who were wounded and those who survive assure that your name and Sacrifice is remembered in the Highest Respect and Honor. You are recognized st the reunions of your Platoon every year since the first 2 members reunited in 1972. May God Bless you and Your Family and May You Rest In Peace. All The Way Sir
