Citation
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at risk of life above and beyond the call of duty on 28 October 1944, near St. Die, France. When his company was stopped in its effort to drive through the Mortagne Forest to reopen the supply line to the isolated third battalion, S/Sgt. Adams braved the concentrated fire of machineguns in a lone assault on a force of German troops. Although his company had progressed less than 10 yards and had lost 3 killed and 6 wounded, S/Sgt. Adams charged forward dodging from tree to tree firing a borrowed BAR from the hip. Despite intense machinegun fire which the enemy directed at him and rifle grenades which struck the trees over his head showering him with broken twigs and branches, S/Sgt. Adams made his way to within 10 yards of the closest machinegun and killed the gunner with a hand grenade. An enemy soldier threw hand grenades at him from a position only 10 yards distant; however, S/Sgt. Adams dispatched him with a single burst of BAR fire. Charging into the vortex of the enemy fire, he killed another machinegunner at 15 yards range with a hand grenade and forced the surrender of 2 supporting infantrymen. Although the remainder of the German group concentrated the full force of its automatic weapons fire in a desperate effort to knock him out, he proceeded through the woods to find and exterminate 5 more of the enemy. Finally, when the third German machinegun opened up on him at a range of 20 yards, S/Sgt. Adams killed the gunner with BAR fire. In the course of the action, he personally killed 9 Germans, eliminated 3 enemy machineguns, vanquished a specialized force which was armed with automatic weapons and grenade launchers, cleared the woods of hostile elements, and reopened the severed supply lines to the assault companies of his battalion.

In reference to #9... Why?...They were not 'Squids'...Popeye, Donald Duck and Pluto were Coasties...It's true and I can prove it, and I am also a former Coastie, the ones who 'do more with less'..
A short story..Adak Alaska...The first night my ship pulled into port, we went to the Tundra Club, The Marine bar, got drunk and fought the Marines..The next night, we went to the Tundra Club, got drunk with the Marines and then the Marines and Coasties went down the hill to the Navy Club and beat up the Squids....
You had a dog named 'Chesty'...Have you heard of Signalman First Class Douglas Munro?
Point Cruz, Guadalcanal, a Marine Battalion was pinned on the beach by the Japanese...Petty Officer Munro, in command of a squadron of Higgins boats, placed his boat, armed with only one .50 cal, between the Japs and the Marines and was killed by the jap fire..Douglas Munro is the only Coastie that has ever received the Medal of Honor...It is the only time the Marine Corps recommended a non Marine for the award..It was then LtCol. Chesty Pullers Battalion that Munro saved...Semper Paratus and Semper Fi...

Hey stupid...Do you know why the Japanese never considered invading the US? They knew they could never defeat us...Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto told the High Command that they would find a gun behind every blade of grass...
How many killings by knives in the UK and Australia??? More than gun killings per capita in the US...Your turn bonzo...
