CITATION:

Silver Star : The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918 (amended by an act of July 25, 1963), takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Sergeant Paul W. Cunningham, United States Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in connection with military operations against an armed hostile force while serving with the 3d Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, in support of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM in Iraq on 31 March 2003. Sergeant Cunningham assaulted the enemy while under direct fire. His fearless actions in the face of almost certain death eliminated the immediate threat to the entire platoon and allowed Soldiers to maneuver freely against the enemy. Sergeant Cunningham's gallant actions and dedicated devotion to duty, without regard for his own life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
