- ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
from Clayton,North Carolina
Silver Star : Chief Signalman John G. Gay, United States Navy, was awarded the Silver Star for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving as a member of a U.S. Navy SEAL Team, U.S. Naval Special Warfare, assigned to Task Force RANGER, during combat actions in Mogadishu, Somalia, in October 1993. While under withering enemy fire during actions in support of UNOSOM II operations, Chief Signalman Gay demonstrated a complete disregard for his own personal safety in the accomplishment of his mission. His actions were in keeping with the highest traditions of U.S. Naval Special Warfare operations and reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Naval Service.
