Soldiers Medal
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 2, 1926, takes pleasure in presenting the Soldier's Medal to Private First Class Ramon G. Smith (ASN: 6237707), United States Army, for heroism, not involving actual conflict with an enemy, displayed in rescuing Private Lawrence F. Hiney, R-292583, Headquarters Detachment and Combat Train, 1st Battalion, 1st Field Artillery, from drowning in Medicine Creek, Fort Sill, Oklahoma, 15 June 1932. While riding along the bank of Medicine Creek, Private Hiney's horse fell and rolled with him into the water, rendering Private Hiney unconscious. Without regard for his own personal safety, Private Smith, who was nearby, plunged into the water which was deep at this point, brought Private Hiney to shore, and administered artificial respiration.
