Lieutenant Dan A. Carmichael, Jr. Class of 2013

Silver Star Medal

United States Navy

Silver Star Medal

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity as Pilot of a Fighter Plane in Fighting Squadron TWO, attached to the U. S. S. HORNET, during action against enemy Japanese forces in the vicinity of the Marianas Islands on June 11 and 19, 1944. With his plane attacked twice by hostile aircraft while circling a downed pilot neat Guam, Lieutenant (then Lieutenant, Junior Grade) Carmichael engaged and shot down two fighters. Dispatched to intercept a force of enemy planes threatening our major Fleet units during the First Battle of The Philippine Sea, he carried out an attack, destroying a fighter and two torpedo bombers and contributing to the success of the mission. By his skill as an airman and devotion to duty, Lieutenant Carmichael upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
