July 31, 1943 THE TYNDALL TARGET Page 7 GETS CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL GENERAL ORDERS WAR D EPARTMENT NO. 38 washington 25r D .C., 12 July 1943 I I. Awar d of Medal of direction of the President, (( der the provisions of the act o f Congress approved 9 July l.;c_ .:J18 (Bull. 43, liD, 1918), a Medal of Honor was awarded by the War Department in the name of Congress to the following-named enlisted man : Sergeant Maynard H. Smith (Army serial No. 36523097), Air Corps, Unite d States Army. For conspicuous gallantry and ln trepidity in action above and beyond the call of duty. The aircraft of which Sergeant Smith was a gun ner was subjected to intense enemy antiaircraft fire and determined fighter airplane attacks while returning from a mission over enemy occupied continental Europe on 1 May 1943. The airplane was hit several times by antiaircraft fire and cannon shells of the. fighter airplanes, two of the crew were seriously wounded, the aircraft's oxygen system shot out, and several vital control ca.'Jles severed when intense fires were ignited simultaneously in the radio compartment and waist sections. The situation berne so acute that three of the crew bailed out into the com . rative sa1 ety of the sea. Sergeant Smith, then on his first combat mission, to fight the fire by himself, administered first-aid to the wounded. tail gunner, ma'nned the waist guns, tm d f ought the intense flames alternately. The escaping oxygen fanned the fire to such intense heat that the ammunition in the radio compartment beg?n to explode, the radio, gun mount, and camera were melted, and the compartment completely gutted. Sergeant Smith threw the exploding ammunition overboard, fought the fire until all the firefighting aids were exhausted, manned the workable guns until the enemy fighters were driven away,. further administered first-aid to his wounded comrade, and then by wrapping himself in protecting cloth, completely ex tinguished the fire by hand. This soldier's gallantry in undaunted bravery, and loyalty to his aircraft. and fellow crew members without regard for his own personal safety, i.s an in$piration to the armed forces of the United States.
