When SGT Leigh Ann Hester and members of the 617th Military Police Company, Kentucky National Guard set out for a routine convoy escort mission in March 2005, she never knew what challenges awaited her and her team. SGT Hester was the vehicle commander riding in the second HMMWV behind a convoy of 26 supply vehicles when her squad leader, SSG Timothy Nein, observed the convoy under attack and moved to contact. When she arrived at the ambush location, she saw the lead vehicle had been hit with a rocket-propelled grenade. A group of about 50 insurgents seemed determined to inflict devastating damage on the now stopped convoy. She immediately joined the fight and engaged the enemy with well-aimed fires from her rifle and grenade launcher. The intense engagement lasted over 45 minutes. When the firing finally subsided, 27 insurgents lay dead, six were wounded, and one was captured. Despite the initially overwhelming odds and battlefield clutter, SGT Hester and her Soldiers persevered. They effectively quelled the attack, allowing the supply convoy to continue safely to their destination. Throughout the situational chaos, SGT Hester and her comrades had remained resilient, focused, and professional. The fearless response by Hester and SSG Nein had helped the Soldiers overcome the initial shock of the ambush and instilled the necessary confidence and courage to complete the mission successfully. For Hester’s MP company, the countless hours on small arms ranges and practicing urban warfare and convoy operations had paid off. Well-rehearsed battle drills be-came second nature. She and her fellow Soldiers were able to live the words, “Mission first – never quit.” For her actions, SGT Hester earned the Silver Star. She is the first female Soldier since World War II to receive this award. SSG Nein and SPC Jason Mike also won the Silver Star and several other unit members were awarded Bronze Stars for valor. Return to slideVersace vignette: Versace vignette He Never Gave In In a park in Alexandria, Virginia is the life size statue of an American soldier with two small Vietnamese children. Near them is a wall with the names of 65 other Alexandrians that died during the Vietnam conflict. This memorial came almost forty years after Captain Humbert "Rocky" Versace, a POW, was executed by his captors in North Vietnam. It honors a man who never gave up his beliefs during extreme hardships and never gave in to the enemy, even in the face of death. Captain Versace was a West Point graduate assigned to the Military Assistance and Advisory Group (MAAG) as an intelligence advisor during October 1963. While accompanying a Civilian Irregular Defense Group (CIDG) engaged in combat operations in the An Xuyen Province, Versace and two fellow Special Forces soldiers, LT Nick Rowe and SFC Dan Pitzer, came under attack from a Viet Cong main force battalion. Versace, shot in the leg and back, was taken prisoner along with the others. They were forced to walk barefoot a long distance, deep into the jungle. Once there, Versace assumed the position of senior prisoner and demanded the captors treat them as prisoners, not war criminals. They locked him in an isolation box, beaten and interrogated. He tried to escape four times, once crawling through the surrounding swamp until he was recaptured. He garnered most of the attention of the Viet Cong so that life was tolerable for his fellow prisoners. He was their role model (continued on next slide) Return to slideVersace vignette (cont): Versace vignette (cont) He refused to violate the Code of Conduct, giving the enemy only information required by the Geneva Convention which he would recite repeatedly, chapter and verse. When other soldiers would operate in those remote areas, they heard stories of Versace's ordeal from local rice farmers. Versace spoke fluent Vietnamese and French and would resist his captors loudly enough that local villagers could hear him. They reported seeing him led through the area with a rope around his neck, hands tied, bare footed, head swollen and yellow from jaundice. His hair had turned white from the physical stress. The rice farmers spoke of his strength and character and his commitment to his God and his country. On September 26, 1965, after two years in captivity, he was executed in retaliation for three Viet Cong killed in Da Nang. For his bravery, Versace was awarded the Medal of Honor and inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame at Ft. Benning. Versace's remains were never found, but a tombstone bearing his name stands above an empty grave in Arlington cemetery. The statue across town is a tribute to who Captain Versace was. Ironically, he was just weeks from leaving the Army and studying to become a missionary before being captured. He wanted to return to Vietnam and help the orphaned children. Most of all, he will be remembered as someone with strong character and beliefs who never gave in. Return to slide You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
