Comments/Citation

Second Lieutenant Logan Christopher Weathers, United States Army, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with Company A, 305th Infantry Regiment, 77th Infantry Division, in action against enemy forces on 21 June 1945. Second Lieutenant Weathers' intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty at the cost of his life, exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 77th Infantry Division, and the United States Army.


General Orders: Headquarters, U.S. Forces-Pacific, General Orders No. 398 (1945)


First Lieutenant Logan Christopher Weathers, United States Army, was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy of the United Nations while serving with 8066th Mechanized Reconnaissance Platoon attached to the 89th Medium Tank Battalion, 29th Regimental Combat Team, 24th Infantry Division. First Lieutenant Weathers distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action against enemy aggressor forces near Haman, Korea, on 2 August 1950. The 8066th Reconnaissance Platoon was spearheading an attack by the 19th Regimental Combat Team when they came under enemy fire which included mortar and bazooka fire. Lieutenant Weathers' vehicle received a direct hit and his arm was partially blown off. At that instant the infantry came under terrific enemy machine-gun and, despite his serious wound, Lieutenant Weathers seized his rifle and, single-handed, attacked an enemy machine-gun nest. He silence the machine-gun nest but during this action he was killed by sniper fire.
