 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
"As he came to the top of a hill, Sp. Dartt spotted an enemy bunker only 20 feet from his position. The enemy immediately opened fire on him. With complete disregard for his own safety, Sp. Dartt stood his ground and returned the enemy's fire. His quick reaction warned his platoon of the danger and prevented a number of casualties. As he began evasive action to avoid the hostile fire, Sp. Dartt was mortally wounded."
