Comments: The 2nd Bn 39th FA is still part of the 3rd Infantry Division, stationed at Fort Stewart, Georgia. It is now a MLRS Battalion.

I served with A Battery while it was at Ledward Barracks in Schewinfurt, Germany from 1978 until 1980.

The Battery Commanders were Captain Harvey D. Jones, XO LT Carlton Harris, 1SG Richard Perry,
and the Battalion Commander was LTC Creighton Abrams.

COMMENTS: In a letter from Robert L. White, Jr.,
Lt. Col., US Army Chief, Military Awards,
Department of the Army dated November 28, 2002. To
honorable Edward R. Royce, Representative in
Congress. "Dear Mr. Royce, The purpose of this
letter is to provide you further information
concerning an award recommendation for the
Distinguished Service Cross to (then) Second
Lieutenant George S. Buck. The award
recommendation was forwarded to the Army
Decorations Board for consideration. The Board
determined that the degree of action and service
rendered did not meet the criteria for the
proposed award, recommending instead an award of
the Silver Star Medal for gallantry in action.
Therefore the Commanding General, United States
Total Army Command, on behalf of the Secretary of
the Army, has approved the award of the Silver
Star, It was an honor to issue the Silver Star in
recognition of Mr. Buck's faithful and dedicated
service to our Nation in a time of great need."

Rank and organization: Second Lieutenant U.S.
Army, Battery C, 39th Field Artillery Battalion,
3d Infantry Division Place and date: Near
Surang-ni, Korea, 10 to 11 June 1953.
Citation:
2nd Lt. George Sam Buck, a member of the 39th
Field Artillery Battalion assigned as Forward
Observer to Company K, 15th Infantry Regiment,
distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and
outstanding courage above and beyond the call of
duty in action against the enemy. Company K was
committed to the defense of "Outpost Harry", a
strategically valuable position, when the enemy
launched a reinforced regimental sized attack
against the company. 2nd Lt. Buck moving about the
outpost units while constantly exposing himself to
direct enemy fire effectively called for defensive
fire from the supporting indirect fire units.
Learning that the enemy had reached the trenches
he returned to the company command post on the
outpost. 2nd Lt. Buck took a position just inside
the command bunker and along with the company
commander and executive officer, they repulsed
several attempts by the enemy to seize the command
post. The enemy threw grenades into the bunker,
seriously wounding the company commander and
mortally wounding the executive officer, both
being knocked unconscious. Lt. Buck although
seriously wounded remained at the bunker entrance
protecting those inside the bunker and rendered
first aid to the company commander. Repeatedly the
enemy attempted to enter the bunker only to be
denied entrance by the deadly carbine fire from
Lt. Buck. He remained in radio contact with
support units. When it became apparent that the
position was untenable, he called for artillery
fire upon his position, stopping the enemy
advance. The enemy threw more grenades into the
bunker knocking Lt. Buck down, this time wounding
him in the leg and arm. On two more occasions when
enemy soldiers stepped into the doorway to fire,
Lt. Buck killed them, denying the enemy control of
the command post and saving the life of his fellow
soldiers. Finding that his carbine was jammed as
the enemy entered the bunker, he wiped blood from
his wounds on to his face and lay still beside the
two unconscious company officers. When the K
Company officers started to regain consciousness,
the enemy shot them both, killing the executive
officer and again wounding the company commander.
Reinforcements drove the enemy from the outpost
and not until Lt. Buck’s Artillery forward
observer replacement arrived, did Lt. Buck leave
the outpost. 2Nd L

Comments: Greetings to all,

I am searching for any information i might obtain about my father. His name was Maurice James Lawler. What little information i have is that he was with the 39th Art. battalion 3rd infantry division. He was wounded in action on 24 APR 53.He was one of only 2 survivors when his position was overrun. He was awarded the Silver Star for valor in hand to hand combat for this. I would very much appreciate to hear from anyone who might have known my father during this time. I thank you in advance.
