(Trail of Honor VIP: 2023)

Bronze Star Medal w/Valor Citation reads:

For the Period 6 February 1973 to 29 March 1973: This officer distinguished himself by heroic actions against an opposing armed force while a Prisoner of War in North Vietnam during the above period. With complete disregard for his own safety and personal welfare in a period of severe enemy harassment, this officer took complete care of a seriously wounded fellow prisoner without assistance from the Vietnamese. By his courageous actions and humanitarian regard for his fellowman in an environment of heavy enemy pressure and brutal treatment, he has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
