Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC Jose Salazar, 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, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter

MILITARY ASSISTANCE COMMAND, VIETNAM


CITATION FOR POSTHUMOUS AWARD OF

THE SILVER STAR


The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal ( Posthumously ) to Malcom Pierce Libbey ( RA51293594 ), Staff Sergeant, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while assigned to Advisory Team 86, U.S. Military Assistance Command, Vietnam. Staff Sergeant Libbey distinguished himself by gallantry in action on 12 October 1967 while serving as Light Weapons Infantry Advisor to the 4th Battalion, 50th Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, Army of the Republic of Vietnam. On that date, the battalion headquarters, Long An Province, came under attack from an estimated reinforced Vietcong company. At the onset, he moved to the advisory bunker with other members of the team. The bunker was the target of two accurately thrown hand grenades which exploded within the bunker causing serious wounds to Sergeant Libbey. Thinking that the other men in the bunker had all been killed, Sergeant Libbey, ignoring the extreme danger, moved from the bunker through the fireswept areas to the Assistant Battalion Advisor who was located in the team's quarters. Although seriously wounded, Sergeant Libbey assumed a position inside the house and provided covering fire as his comrade operated the only remaining radio. An enemy grenade detonated a short distance from his position causing even more severe wounds. Ignoring his multiple injuries, Sergeant Libbey continued to offer protective fire until a second grenade mortally wounded him. As a result of his extraordinary valor and absolute dedication to duty, the other team members were able to prepare a defensive perimeter and remove the wounded to a secure area. Sergeant Libbey's conspicuous gallantry in action was in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Army and reflected great credit upon himself and the military service.

You're not forgotten.

To this day I can picture you smiling. And I miss you still so much. Even though my children never got to meet you, through me they know a lot about you and what you meant to me, especially how proud I am about how you gave your life for your troop. Rest in peace. I love you.
