CITATION:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 8, 1918 (amended by act of July 25, 1963), takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Lieutenant Colonel Glenn Hubert Wilson (AFSN: FR-54287), United States Air Force, for gallantry in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force while held as a Prisoner of War in North Vietnam, during the month of May 1969. After a planned escape from the "Zoo Camp," the enemy launched a massive torture purge attempting to gain prisoner secrets and propaganda materials. Tortured well beyond the normal threshold of pain, he continued to resist the enemy. By his gallantry and devotion to duty, Colonel Wilson has reflected great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
