First Lieutenant
Chalmers P. Wylie
Class of 2000

United States Army


First Lieutenant Chalmers P. Wylie distinguished himself by gallantry in action on 23 March 1945, while serving with the 117th Infantry Regiment in Germany. When the Aid Station, of which Lieutenant Wylie was Assistant Battalion Surgeon, crossed the Rhine River, the various sections were scattered and disorganized by heavy enemy artillery, mortar, and small arms fire. Lieutenant Wylie courageously moved from one end of the battalion sector to the other contacting his men. Despite the intense fire, he reorganized his section and set up for operation. Then under concentrated hostile mortar fire, he led the way into a minefield and evacuated wounded men. Lieutenant Wylie's fearless actions and ability to overcome all obstacles saved the lives of a number of wounded men.
