Distinguished Flying Cross Citation

HOME OF RECORD:
Altoona, Pennsylvania

Distinguished Flying Cross
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Navy
Rank: Lieutenant
GENERAL ORDERS:
All Hands (July 1968)

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross (Posthumously) to Lieutenant Edward Philip Szeyller (NSN: 0-633877), United States Navy, for extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight on 5 February 1967, while serving with a Navy Fighter Squadron in Southeast Asia. Flying as Radar Intercept Officer in the lead aircraft of a 28-plane strike group, Lieutenant Szeyller participated in a successful strike against the heavily defended railroad yards at Thanh Hoa, North Vietnam. He provided his pilot with exact information on radar returns and assisted him in leading the group to a precise coast-in point at the target. At the same time, he maintained aerial surveillance to insure that no MiG aircraft would surprise the bomb-laden planes. He provided vital bomb delivery information at the target resulting in the successful completion of the mission.
