Wednesday Hero-Sgt.Philip A. McCulloch


Sgt.Philip A. McCulloch Jr.

Company K, Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, Regimental Combat Team
Eight, SECOND Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force
(Forward)

U.S. Marines

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in
presenting the Silver Star to Sergeant Philip A. McCulloch, Jr.
United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity
in action while serving as Squad Leader, Company K,
Third Battalion, Fifth Marines, Regimental Combat Team Eight,
SECOND Marine Division(Forward), I Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward)
Afghanistan on 8 January 2011 in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM.

During a six-hour engagement with insurgent forces in Sangin District, Sergeant
McCulloch led his squad of Marine sin a determined pursuit of a
numerically superior enemy force. After being attacked by enemy
fighters, he personally led his squad’s counter attack by assuming
point and closing on the enemy, pausing just long enough to destroy an
enemy fighting positions with an AT-4.

Once he regained the initiative, he pursued the enemy into a nearby row of compounds and
forced them into fixed positions where many of them were destroyed by
close air support and indirect fires, combined with maneuver.
Maintaining constant pressure on the enemy, he forced them to fall
back as aircraft departed for fuel and ammunition re-supply.
Throughout the engagement, he aggressively drove his Marines to remain
focused, exposing himself to enemy fire to identify enemy positions
and coordinate fires in support of maneuver.

Even after beginning to return to base, as the enemy again engaged the Marines,
he controlled another section of helicopters with devastating effects, allowing his
squad to return to friendly lines. By his bold leadership, wise
judgment, and complete dedication to duty, Sergeant McCulloch
reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions
of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval
Service.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives just so
others may get to enjoy freedom. For that I am proud to call them
Hero.

Staff Sergeant Robert Gutierrez-Wednesday Hero


SSgt. Robert Gutierrez , Jr.
U.S.<br />
Navy

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in
presenting the Air Force Cross to Staff Sergeant Robert Gutierrez,
Jr., United States Air Force, for extraordinary heroism in military
operations against an armed enemy of the United States in Heart
Province, Afghanistan, on 5 October 2009. On that date, while assigned
as a combat controller to an Army Special Forces Detachment, Sergeant
Gutierrez and his team conducted a high-risk nighttime raid to capture
the number two Taliban leader in the region. During the initial
assault, the team was attacked with a barrage of rifle and heavy
machine-gun fire from a numerically superior and determined enemy
force. Sergeant Gutierrez was shot in the chest, his team leader was
shot in the leg, and the ten-man element was pinned down in a building
with no escape route. In great pain and confronting the very real
possibility that he would die, Sergeant Gutierrez seized the
initiative and refused to relinquish his duties as joint terminal
attack controller. Under intense fire, he engaged Taliban fighters
with his M-4 rifle and brought air power to bear, controlling three
“danger close” A-10 strafing runs with exceptional precision against
enemy forces just 30 feet away. After the first A-10 attack, the team
medic performed a needle decompression to re-inflate Sergeant
Gutierrez’s collapsed lung, allowing him to direct the next two strafe
runs which decimated the enemy force and allowed the team to escape
the kill zone without additional casualties. Throughout the four-hour
battle, Sergeant Gutierrez’s valorous actions, at great risk to his
own life, helped save the lives of his teammates and dealt a crushing
blow to the regional Taliban network. Through his extraordinary
heroism, superb airmanship, and aggressiveness in the face of the
enemy, Sergeant Gutierrez reflected the highest credit upon himself
and the United States Air Force.
