AWARD OF THE SILVER STAR(POSTHUMOUS)
For gallantry in action against a hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam. Specialist Browning distinguished himself by intrepid actions on 18 September 1968 while serving as a medical aidman with the 2nd platoon of Company D, 1st Battalion, 20th Infantry, 11th Infantry Brigade. On that date, Company D, was engaged on a combat operation near the villiage of Go Tro. When his platoon leader was wounded by machinegun fire from an enemy ambush, Specialist Browning immediately ran to his aid, heedless of the danger around him, he continued to apply first aid until he was struck and mortally wounded by an enemy .30 caliber machinegun bullet. Specialist Four Browning's personal heroism, unselfish concern for his fellow soldiers and devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, the Americal Division, and the United States Army.
