CITATION

FOR AWARD OF THE


CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR


KHE GIO BRIDGE

REPUBLIC OF VIETNAM

12 MARCH 1970


For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life
above and beyond the call of duty. Sergeant Stout distinguished
himself during an attack by a North Vietnamese Army sapper company
on his unit's firing position at Khe Gio Bridge. Sergeant Stout was in a
bunker with members of a searchlight crew when the position came
under heavy enemy mortar fire and ground attack. When the intensity
of the mortar attack subsided, an enemy grenade was thrown into the
bunker. Displaying great courage, Sergeant Stout ran to the grenade,
picked it up, and started out of the bunker. As he reached the door,
the grenade exploded. By holding the grenade close to his body and
shielding the blast, he protected his fellow soldiers in the bunker from
further injury or death. Sergeant Stout's conspicuous gallantry and
intrepidity in action, at the cost of his own life, are in keeping with
the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit
upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

6th grade memories

I was Mitchell's 6th grade teacher in 1963,Lenoir City , TN. He was 13, and an enthusiastic student,and always willing to help in any way. I will always remember his smiling face..especially when he playfully asked me if Mr. Lynch would allow me to go with him on a church hayride. I was not long out of college and shorter then he. I thanked him for the invitation but wisely declined as we laughed at his folly. I was so flattered!!! Mary Britten Lynch, Lookout Mtn.,Ga.
