General Orders Number 187, 94 Infantry Division, Awards of the Bronze Star Medal, 26, July 1945:

Staff Sergeant REUBEN G DENNARD, Jr., 14140525, Infantry, Company L, 302d Infantry Regiment, United States Army, for heroic achievement in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States in Germany on 6 March 1945. When numerically superior forces attacked his positions, Sergeant DENNARD tenaciously manned his mortar and engaged the enemy. Knocked down three times by concussion when shells exploded nearby, he regained his position on each occasion and delivered accurate fire on the foe. His brave actions were instrumental in repulsing the attack with heavy losses to the enemy. His conspicuous heroism and supreme devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military service. Entered the military service from Atlanta, Georgia.

We remember you on this, the 70th anniversary of D-Day. You fought valiantly at Pointe du Hoc, climbing the cliff and helping to capturing the gun at the top, a mile away. You were one of the lucky to survive. Thank you for your courage.
