Silver Star Citation

*CARROLL, PETER R. (KIA)
Citation:
The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal (Posthumously) to Peter R. Carroll (2375967), Lance Corporal, U.S. Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as a Fire Team Leader with Company H, Second Battalion, First Marines, FIRST Marine Division in connection with operations against the enemy in the Republic of Vietnam. On 15 January 1969, Lance Corporal Carroll was standing watch during a cordon operation around the village of Cam Sa in Quang Nam Province when he alertly observed eight North Vietnamese Army soldiers crawl through a hedgerow near the village. With complete disregard for his own safety, he opened fire on the hostile group and, although he came under a heavy volume of return fire, resolutely maintained his dangerously exposed position, thereby enabling his men to deploy to covered fighting positions. During the ensuing engagement with the numerically superior force, the fire team's machine gun malfunctioned, and realizing the seriousness of the situation, Lance Corporal Carroll, again standing in full view of the enemy and delivering cover fire, killed two hostile soldiers and pinned down the others, while his companions corrected the deficiency. While thus protecting his fellow Marines, he was mortally wounded. His heroic and timely actions inspired all who observed him and subsequently enabled his comrades to repel the attack of the North Vietnamese soldiers. By his courage, bold initiative and unwavering devotion to duty, Lance Corporal Carroll saved several Marines from possible death or serious injury and upheld the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.
