Charles D. Morrow | Silver Star, second oak leaf cluster
Citation to accompany the award of the Silver Star, second oak leaf cluster, to Staff Sergeant Charles D. Morrow.
Staff Sergeant Charles D. Morrow distinguished himself by gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force in Laos from 10 February 1972 to 11 February 1972. On those dates, Sergeant Morrow flew an extremely hazardous mission deep into enemy territory to rescue two American airmen. With complete disregard for his personal safety, Sergeant Morrow manned his minigun position, completely exposing himself to possible hostile fire, and relayed valuable information to the pilot to keep the helicopter clear of the jungle covered mountainous terrain. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Sergeant Morrow has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
