rt, Iowa

Sergeant, U.S. Army, Nov. 5, 1966, Vietnam

Sgt. Baker's unit, while en-route to assist a unit engaged with the enemy, came under intense fire. He assaulted six enemy bunkers under intense fire, often single-handedly, inflicting casualties upon the enemy and saving the lives of several wounded men by evacuating them to safety and repeatedly returning to re-engage the enemy.

Robert L. Howard, Opelika, Ala.

1st Lieutenant (then Sergeant First Class), U.S. Army, Dec. 30, 1968, Vietnam

While on a mission to rescue a missing soldier in enemy controlled territory, his platoon was attacked by a superior force and he was wounded. Unable to walk and weaponless, he crawled through a hail of fire to retrieve the wounded platoon leader, and crawled from position to position rendering aid, encouragement and directing defensive fire, repulsing enemy attacks.

Thomas J. Hudner, Jr., Fall River, Mass.

Lieutenant Junior Grade, U.S. Navy, Dec. 1, 1950, Korea

Attempting to rescue a fellow fighter pilot shot down behind enemy lines and trapped in the burning wreckage, he landed his plane wheels up on rough, mountainous terrain infested with enemy troops. He struggled to pull the other pilot free of the wreckage and stayed with the downed pilot, despite continued danger of the enemy, fighting time, cold and flames.

George T. Sakato, Colton, Calif.

Private, U.S. Army, Oct. 29, 1944, France, World War II

His unit pinned down by heavy enemy fire, he single-handedly rushed an enemy strongpoint and encouraged others to join his attack. He reorganized and inspired his comrades in halting a counterattack. During this action, he killed 12 of the enemy snipers and his fighting spirit turned impending defeat into victory and helped his platoon complete its mission.

Note: Robert L. Howard and Thomas J. Hudner, Jr. are available for interviews prior to Memorial Day and the National Memorial Day Parade.
