MEDAL OF HONOR READING FOR M/SGT GARY GORDON
Gary Gordon graduated from Mattanawcook Academy in 1978 and then joined the U.S. Army at age 18. He initially trained as an Army Combat Engineer before transferring to the U.S. Army Special Forces. Both he and fellow “Delta” Operator Randall Shughart, a close friend as well as team member, were Killed in Action during the Somalia mission that became known as the “Blackhawk Down” mission. Both Shughart and Gordon were awarded Posthumous Medals of Honor, the only Medal of Honor Awards in the interim between the Vietnam War and the Global War on Terrorism.
M/Sgt. Gary I. Gordon, United States Army, distinguished himself by action above and beyond the call of duty on 3 October 1993, while serving as a Sniper Team Leader, United States Army Special Operations Command with Task Force Ranger in Mogadishu, Somalai.
M/Sgt. Gordon’s sniper team provided precision fires from the lead helicopter during an assault, and at two helicopter crash sites, while subjected to intense automatic weapons and rocket propelled grenade fires.
