“It is an honor to recognize such brave soldiers for their valiant service and sacrifice to our country.”
(Indianapolis, Ind.) - State Rep. Chuck Moseley (D-Portage) today co-authored a resolution on the House floor in honor of the Indiana Rangers.
The Indiana Rangers were deployed during the Vietnam War 50 years ago and have been decorated 538 times, more than any other Army infantry company during a one-year period in Vietnam.
“It is an honor to recognize such brave soldiers for their valiant service and sacrifice to our country,” said Moseley.
Their awards and decorations include: 19 Silver Stars, one Soldiers Medal, 123 Bronze Stars (88 with “V” device for valor), 101 Purple Hearts, 111 Air Medals, and 183 Army Commendation Medals (29 with “V” device).
“Throughout my time in the Indiana General Assembly, I have made honoring Hoosier veterans among my very top priorities,” Moseley continued. “It is the very least we can do for these soldiers who have sacrificed so much for our country.”
This resolution was presented on the House floor with the Indiana Rangers present.
