Marine Commendation Medal for Valor in Vietnam

Marine Commendation Medal certificate

Sgt. Grit Sir,

Please find attached Official Citation for Marine Commendation Medal for Valor while serving in South Vietnam with U.S. Marines (1966-67). I was originally recommended for this medal in October, 1966. But never received it. Yesterday history caught up with me and the long over due medal was presented at the Marine Reserve Center in Chattanooga, Tn.

Semper Fidelis,
Elbert L. Gatlin Sgt. of Marines
