Story: Stuart S. Stryker <ul><li>PFC Stuart S. Stryker was assigned to Company E, of the 513th Parachute Infantry, 17th Airborne Division. On 24 March 1945 he was a platoon runner when the unit assembled near Wesel, Germany, after a descent east of the Rhine. Attacking along a railroad, Company E reached a point about 250 yards from a large building used as an enemy headquarters and manned by a powerful force of Germans with rifles, machine guns, and four field pieces. </li></ul>
Story: Stuart S. Stryker <ul><li>One platoon made a frontal assault but was pinned down by intense fire from the house after advancing only 50 yards. So badly stricken that it could not return the raking fire, the platoon was at the mercy of German machine gunners when PFC Stryker voluntarily left a place of comparative safety and, armed with a carbine, ran to the head of the unit. In full view of the enemy and under constant fire, he exhorted the men to get to their feet and follow him. </li></ul>
Story: Stuart S. Stryker <ul><li>Inspired by his fearlessness, they rushed after him in a desperate charge through an increased hail of bullets. Twenty-five yards from the objective, the heroic soldier was killed by the enemy fusillades. His gallant and wholly voluntary action in the face of overwhelming firepower, however, so encouraged his comrades and diverted the enemy's attention that the company was able to surround the house, capturing more than 200 hostile soldiers and much equipment, and freeing three members of an American bomber crew held prisoner there. </li></ul>
Story: Stuart S. Stryker <ul><li>The fearlessness and unhesitating self-sacrifice of PFC Stryker were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service. </li></ul><ul><li>PFC Stryker was born and entered service at Portland, Oregon. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions . </li></ul>

Summary <ul><li>The Army core values go hand in hand with Army combat skills. </li></ul><ul><li>The Army core values all work together, and no value can be ignored in favor of another. </li></ul><ul><li>The Army core values must be practiced as a part of the way we live as US Army soldiers. </li></ul>
Closing Quote <ul><li>“ We can't all do everything; we can't all have every badge, every medal, or every award. But that's okay. As long as you do what you're supposed to do and you do it well, you're going to be okay. If soldiers do the right thing every day because it is the right thing to do, treat other soldiers with dignity and respect, and follow the golden rule, they will succeed as soldiers and the Army will succeed as a whole.” </li></ul>SMA Robert E.
