Recipient of the Navy Cross, the Department of the Navy's 2nd Highest Award for Valor. CITATION FOR AWARD OF THE NAVY CROSS TO CORPORAL BRIAN JAMES GAUTHIER For extraordinary heroism while serving as a Marine Rifle Squad Leader with Company A, First Battalion, Third Marines, Third Marine Division (Reinforced), in the Republic of Vietnam during the early morning of 11 July 1965. While moving to an ambush position, eight miles southwest of Da Nang, Corporal Gauthier's squad suffered heavy casualties from the detonation of an enemy mine and subsequent secondary explosions. Shortly thereafter his unit came under Viet Cong fire from several directions. Although wounded by the initial blast, he persistently refused medical aid until all of the casualties had been treated, meanwhile reorganizing his squad, establishing a defensive perimeter around the wounded, and directing fire against the enemy. During this time a helicopter attempted to evacuate the casualties but was driven off by intensive enemy machine gun fire. For a period of over two hours he continued to shout encouragement and direction to his men until he succumbed to his wounds. Corporal Gauthier's gallant leadership, indomitable fighting spirit, and inspiring devotion to duty reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Marine Corps and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service. He gallantly gave his life for his country.May his sacrifice not be forgotten.
