• For heroism in combat in Vietnam, Army Specialist Five Charles E. Jones, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles C. Jones, Jr., of Tarkio, received the Silver Star and the Bronze Star Medal in ceremonies at Munster, Indiana, October 7. The Silver Star was awarded to Jones for action last February while serving as a medical aidman with a cavalry troop of the 25th Infantry Division that was in battle with a strong enemy force. Moving to aid his wounded comrades, he was struck by rocket fragments while administering first aid. Despite his wounds, which prevented him from moving, he was able to show untrained helpers how to save several men. The 21-year-old medic earned the Bronze Star Medal last January 17 when his troop came under heavy fire from the Viet Cong. He directed medical helicopters into the area, treated the wounded, and was responsible for saving several lives.
