“RANGER SERGEANT ROBERT LAMAR BRYAN (KIA) RHOF CITATION”


Sergeant Robert L. Bryan is inducted into the Ranger Hall of Fame for his Conspicuous Gallant Service to his Country and Devotion to Duty while “Leading The Way” in combat operations, against enemy forces, in the Republic of Vietnam, exemplifying the RANGER CREED, “RANGER LEAD THE WAY“!!!! Sgt Bryan volunteered for Ranger Operations with Co E 75th Inf (Ranger) Abn 3rd Bde 9th Inf Div in Sept 1969. Ranger Bryan exhibited exceptional leadership skills and was a tenacious Warrior who gained the respect of his fellow Rangers. On 30 April 1970 he received the Silver Star for Gallantry in action. As TL 1-7 on an overnight Aquabush, Sgt Bryan positioned 3 men about 75 meters from the shore leaving the remaining members in the boat. Spotting five enemy 200 meters from his location, he exposed himself to engage the enemy killing one. Leading his men through intense hostile fire, he heard someone whistle. Spotting an enemy 20 meters away he exposed himself and killed him with a grenade. While directing his team to their boat he spotted two enemy sampans approaching and as the insurgents initiated contact, Sgt Bryan exposed himself to the fusillade to direct his teams fire, killing four enemy on the sampans. While sweeping the contact area the team received intense fire from an enemy concealed in the nipe 10 meters away. Sgt Bryan reacted to the critical danger and charged the insurgent, killing him at point blank range. Sgt Bryan received a second Silver Star on 11 June 1970 for killing numerous enemy while exposing himself without regard for his own safety and caring for wounded team members. Sgt Bryan continued to lead his team in the Warrior tradition, leading by example, encouraging and inspiring his fellow Rangers to give 100% and then some. Ranger Sgt Bryan while conducting a visual recon in a LOH on 13 July 1970 was KIA while exchanging fire with an enemy ground element. His dedication to his fellow Rangers, duty and mission directly contributed to the high rate of efficiency and success of Ranger Operations, conducted against enemy forces by Echo Rangers, exemplifying the RANGER CREED, “RANGER LEAD THE WAY”!!!!
