CITATION TO ACCOMPANY THE AWARD OF THE SILVER STAR
The Vietnam War - Southeast Asia - The Republic of Vietnam
TSgt. Morton J. Freedman
Technical Sergeant Morton J. Freedman distinguished himself by gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force at the Kham Duc, Republic of Vietnam on 12 May 1968.
On that date, Sergeant Freedman aided the wounded, destroyed a machine gun position of the opposing force, and performed essential communications functions while under a heavy barrage of mortar, recoilless rifle, rocket, machine gun and small arms fire.
Sergeant Freedman provided these communications services from an exposed position with complete disregard for his own life.
By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Sergeant Freedman has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.*
