 Private First Class Brendan E. McIntyre

Private First Class Brendan E. McIntyre, 16065174, 82d Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, United States Army. For heroic achievement in action against the enemy on 10 October 1944 in Germany. At approximately 1100A two platoons of Company "A", 82d Armored Reconnaissance Battalion were outputted southeast of Oidweilder, Germany, when a heavy artillery barrage wounded four men of an adjacent tank unit. With absolute disregard for his own personal safety, Private First Class McIntyre and three men left the safety of their fox holes and went to the aid of these men. Although the three other men were wounded by a following barrage, Private First Class McIntyre continued to give aid to all seven until they were evacuated to the rear. At approximately 1300A the same day, his Platoon Sergeant was wounded by artillery fire. Although he had been relieved from outpost, Private First Class McIntyre again went forward and evacuated the Platoon sergeant to the rear. During, the entire time, Private First class Mclntyre displayed extreme courage and initiative beyond the call of duty.

   
Other Comments:


McIntyre was in Company A, 3rd Platoon, 82nd Reconnaissance Batallion, 2nd Armored Division. He served in the following Campaign's, Africa, Sicily Normandy, (Omaha Beach - D+2); Northern France, Rhineland and the Ardennes. Battle of the Bulge. He was wounded on Christmas Day, 1944, in I think he called it Foy Notre Dame, near Dinant, Belgium taking a severe wound to the left thigh that left him disabled for life.  
 

Having been wounded 2 times before, this one was almost mortal. Thanks to the field medics who stopped the hemorrhaging. He was awarded the Bronze star for saving a group of men who were pinned down in a barrage (and wounded). Dad also lost his brother on a B-17 Flying fortress over Germany. His final request was that he be buried at Arlington National Cemetery, were he rests today.
 

He often told me that the only hero's in War were the ones that were buried in the battlefields on conflict. Thanks, Michael P. McIntyre ( his son )

He often told me that the only hero's in War were the ones that were buried in the battlefields on conflict. After watching "Saving Private Ryan" I understood. And I cried like a baby. I have a number of photos, war records, citation papers, etc. if anyone is interested. Please post this notice on the Taps Page.
