MOH Recipients Who Were Combat Medics

I have always and publically stated that the true heroes serving with Charlie Company were our medics.  The infantryman is trained to take cover and return fire.  The medic is trained to provide aid to the wounded and mostly there is no cover while they are providing aid. The medics of Charlie Company did no less than the Vietnam Medal of Honor Recipients who were combat medics.

The Medal of Honor is the Nation’s highest award for valor.  Fifteen Army medics received the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War.
