Silver Star Citation

Michael Ernest Singer

DATE OF BIRTH: 20-Sep-48

HOME OF RECORD:
Canton, Ohio


Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Marine Corps
Rank: Private First Class
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 1st Marine Division (Rein.), FMF
GENERAL ORDERS:

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Private First Class Michael Ernest Singer (MCSN: 2367488), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as an Artillery Forward Observer with Company D, First Battalion, First Marines, FIRST Marine Division, in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On 5 July 1968, Private First Class Singer was manning an observation post at the Company D defensive position on Hill 689 in the vicinity of Khe Sanh when a patrol moved forward of the perimeter. Advancing approximately 100 meters, the patrol suddenly came under intense automatic weapons fire from a large North Vietnamese Army force and sustained numerous casualties. Realizing the seriousness of the situation, Private First Class Singer unhesitatingly left his covered position and ran across the fire-swept area where he began assisting the wounded to the relative safety of the perimeter. Undaunted by the accurate hostile fire impacting around him, he repeatedly moved forward and assisted in evacuating his wounded comrades to covered positions. Although wounded twice, he refused to be medically evacuated in order to remain with his besieged company. On the night of 7 July, the enemy launched an intensive barrage of automatic weapons and mortar fire on his company's position. Concerned only for the welfare of his comrades, Private First Class Singer fearlessly exposed himself to enemy fire as he carried wounded Marines to positions of relative safety. While assisting a casualty to a more covered area, Private First Class Singer was mortally wounded by the enemy fire. His heroic actions and sincere concern for the safety of his comrades inspired all who observed him and undoubtedly saved the lives of several Marines. By his courage, bold initiative and selfless devotion to duty, Private First Class Singer upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.
