AMEDD Silver Star

  • A-D  Sergeant Maynard Cronin braved enemy observation and fire and crossed a minefield to reach wounded comrades. Read his citation.
  • E-M  SGT Hermanski exhibited leadership and warrior skills while performing the deeds that would earn him his Silver Star.  Also on this page, one of only two known three-time recipients of the Combat Medic Badge, Sergeant Henry Jenkins' second Silver Star citation.  He earned his first in WW II.
  • N-Z   CPL Thomas Nightingale was himself wounded and evacuated by the new innovation, the helicopter.  He also was further evacuated via hospital train and eventually rehabilitated in Japan.  Upon his recovery, he elected to return to his unit instead of returning to the United States and arrived just before the 1953 battle for Pork Chop Hill.
