of the

President of the United States


Distinguished Service Cross

Is Awarded 


Sequoyah Hall


Rank and Organization:  Sergeant, Company B, 2nd Battalion, 12th Cavalry, 1st Cavalry Division (Airmobile)

Date and Place:  21 April 1970,  Republic of Vietnam

Reason:  For extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam:  Sergeant Hall distinguished himself while serving as squad leader during an operation in Phuoc Long Province.  As Sergeant Hall's squad moved through the dense jungle, they came under a heavy barrage of rocket propelled grenades and small arms fire from an undetermined sized enemy force.  Although seriously wounded by the initial burst of fire, Sergeant hall began adjusting artillery fire upon the well-concealed foe and directed his men into defensive positions.  As the hostile force attempted to assault the friendly elements locations, the sergeant met the brunt of the attack and repelled the assailants with devastating volleys of automatic weapon fire.  After his ammunition was expended, Sergeant Hall painfully crawled forward and tossed fragmentation grenades at the enemy which blocked their avenue of assault and forced them to withdraw.  Sergeant Hall's extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
