First Lieutenant Paul E. Taylor Class of 2009

Silver Star Medal

United States Army

Silver Star Medal

When the company position in the vicinity of Chungam-ni, Korea was attacked by large hostile forces on 4 August 1950, Lieutenant Taylor was directed to reinforce the left flank of the company with one squad of his platoon. Skillfully withdrawing a squad from the right flank, he courageously led it to counterattack the enemy. During the advance, he was painfully wounded in the head. Halting briefly to apply a bandage, he resumed the advance to repel the enemy and restore the company position. Lieutenant Taylor's conspicuous courage and outstanding leadership reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Army.
