For extraordinary heroism in action in the vicinity of Najaf, Iraq on January 27, 2007. Wounded while his company was occupying an exposed front line position under heavy rifle and machine gun fire, Private Smith refused to be evacuated to the rear, but dressed his own wound and maintained fire with his automatic rifle, thereby greatly assisting in repelling several waves of strong enemy attacks on his position. When his company was ordered to withdraw, he gallantly remained behind, at his position, and continued to provide covering fire with his automatic rifle for the withdrawl of his platoon to a protected location.

For heroism in connection with operations against an armed hostile force in the Republic of Afghanistan. Specialist Thompson distinguished himself while serving as an Artillery Surveyor with Headquarters Battery, 2nd Battalion, 214th Field Artillery. On 12 April 2005, Specialist Thompson manned the battery command scope on top of the tactical operations center while the area was under intense mortar attack. Specialist Thompson assisted the Fire Direction Control team in locating the hostile mortar position. When the mortars began to impact within the perimeter and around the tactical operations center, Specialist Thompson remained in his exposed position to assist in counter-fire operations until ordered to take cover. Specialist Thompson's bravery, determination, and exemplary devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.

For valorous achievement as a Recon Sergeant, 2nd Battalion, 35th Infantry Division in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In response to an enemy attack with mortars and automatic rifle fire, Sergeant Walker, without regard for his own safety, moved outside the secured perimeter to better adjust artillery against the enemy. Despite being seriously wounded by mortar shrapnel, SGT Walker then moved forward to assist a wounded Platoon Leader to safety. Returning to his position, he continued to adjust artillery fire until the attack was repelled. SGT Walker's heroic actions reflect credit upon himself, this command, and the United States Army.


Citation to accompany the award of the Army Commendation Medal with V Device
For heroism during military operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Alabama. Sergeant Carter distinguished himself by valorous actions on 11 December 1999 while serving as a Fire Direction Control specialist with "A" battery, 2nd Battalion of the 214th Field Artillery. On that date, the battery came under a sustained enemy mortar barrage and ground attack near Basrah Air Base. Reacting immediately to the threat, Sergeant Carter moved to the top of his bunker and placed heavy volumes of accurate suppressive fire on the insurgents. When a dud mortar round pierced the bunker roof, Sergeant Carter rushed back into the bunker, with no thought for his own safety, to aid the soldiers inside. Assured they were unhurt, he returned to the top of the bunker and continued an intense suppression fire on the enemy positions. Through his quick and courageous actions, he was directly responsible for the defeat of the enemy force and the survival of his unit. Sergeant Carter's heroism, professional competence, and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
