Silver Star Citation

Fred W. Carpenter

DATE OF BIRTH: October 18, 1946
PLACE OF BIRTH:
Union City, Tennessee
HOME OF RECORD:
Hobart, Indiana

Silver Star
AWARDED FOR ACTIONS
DURING Vietnam War
Service: Army
Rank: Sergeant
Battalion: 1st Battalion
Division: 25th Infantry Division
GENERAL ORDERS:
Headquarters, 4th Infantry Division, General Orders No. 2019 (July 17, 1967)
CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 8, 1918 (amended by act of July 25, 1963), takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Sergeant Fred W. Carpenter (ASN: US-55885165), United States Army, for gallantry in action while serving with Company B, 1st Battalion, 35th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division, at Hoa Tan, Republic of Vietnam, on 6 March 1967. As Sergeant Carpenter and his company approached the village, heavy fire was received from Viet Cong positions. Realizing that his unit was in a precarious position, Sgt Carpenter immediately maneuvered his squad into position from which it could place effective fire on the enemy. Then with complete disregard for his personal safety, he charged forward and silenced a heavily fortified enemy bunker with two grenades. With this bunker eliminated, the platoon was able to maneuver once more. Throughout the entire encounter, Sgt Carpenter continued to direct his squad, personally positioning and directing the fire of individual members. His heroic actions and decisive leadership contributed to the accomplishment of the unit's mission. Sergeant Carpenter's outstanding display of aggressiveness, devotion to duty, and personal bravery is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit on himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SGT Fred W Carpenter, 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, Sir

Curt Carter
