Final Mission of SP4 David H. Stamper

Final Mission of SP4 David H. Stamper
For gallery in action in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile forces: Specialist Four Stamper distinguished himself April 14, 1972, by exceptionally valorous actions while serving as door gunner on a utility helicopter which was flight lead for a combat assault mission in the An Khe area of Vietnam. Republic of Korea forces had been in heavy contact with a determined enemy force for three days prior to Specialist Four Stamper’s valorous actions. Early in the afternoon, a landing zone had been prepared for insertion of troops to successfully combat the advancing force. Enroute to the landing zone, Specialist Stamper’s aircraft had been advised that a hot landing zone could be expected. Upon entering the landing zone, his aircraft began to take a heavy volume of fire, killing two Koreans on board. Specialist Stamper at this time received a wound which knocked him from his weapon. Completely disregarding his own safety, he courageously pulled himself up and once again placed pinpoint fire on the enemy positons. The second and fatal wound was then received by Specialist Stamper which knocked him to the floor of the aircraft. His daring courage, quick thinking and devotion to duty were in keeping with the very highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
