     I would like to take this opportunity to personally commend your outstanding performance of duty in support
of elements of the 2d Brigade during the numerous enemy contacts of the past several months. Your dedication
 to duty and your  superb flying ability have contributed immeasurably to the success of 2d Brigade missions.

     On numerous occasions throughout this period, you have greatly aided the     infantryman in combat by placing
accurate, suppressive fire upon enemy positions with your Cobra gunship. Your immediate responsiveness and
 flexibility to the frequent changes on the battlefield have resulted in many allied lives being saved, numerous enemy
 killed, and countless battles won. You have developed close rapport and understanding with the infantry unit
commander  and earned the respect of all those with whom you have come in contact.

    Particularly I congratulate you for your recent efforts on behalf of the 2d Battalion, 12th  Infantry on 28 September
1969. Your  personal display of valor in supporting US troops in contact with a large NVA force provided inspiration
to the ground  forces. On numerous passes, you exposed yourself to great danger flying within minimum altitude
and delivering accurate minigun fires just forward of the friendly troops. You pinpointed the enemy bunkers and
rendered great assistance to both the airborne and ground commanders. Your positive attitude and professionalism
 reflect great credit upon you and your unit.

     I again extend my sincere appreciation and thanks for a job done extraordinarily well and wish you continued
 success in all your future endeavors.
