Distinguished Flying Cross Citation

Charles Henry Peters

DATE OF BIRTH: January 30, 1927

HOME OF RECORD:
West Point, Nebraska

Distinguished Flying Cross
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Navy
Rank: Commander
GENERAL ORDERS:
All Hands (July 1967)
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross (Posthumously) to Commander Charles Henry Peters, United States Navy, for extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight during combat missions against North Vietnamese forces on 1 July 1966. When his plane was hit by enemy ground fire and started to burn, Commander Peters elected to fly his aircraft to the relative safety of the open sea. He succeeded in flying 140 miles over enemy territory, reaching the coast as a large fire engulfed his right wing. As he broadcast his intention to eject because of rapid loss of control, the plane went into a violent snap roll and made three turns before Commander Peters was able to eject. His intrepid action brought his accompanying aviators away from an extremely hazardous environment, sacrificing his life in his effort to protect the lives of others.
