(Posthumously)

Rank and Organization: Private First Class, Company A, 5th Battalion (Airmobile), 7th Cavalry, 3rd Brigade, 1st Air Cavalry Division

Date and Place: 3 January 1968, Republic of Vietnam

Reason: For extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations involving conflict with an armed hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam: Private First Class Glines distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 3 January 1968 as a rifleman during a search and destroy mission in Hoi An Province. Private Glines was the point position for his unit, moving ahead of his platoon as it advanced across a series of open rice paddies. Suddenly a large, well armed enemy force placed heavy fire on the Platoon from concealed positions in a woodline. Private Glines immediately charged the enemy despite the fusillade. He moved forward in the open, intent only on destroying the enemy and aiding those elements of his platoon which were pinned down in the rice paddy. His accurate automatic rifle fire permitted his trapped comrades to reach cover. Assaulting the nearest bunker, he destroyed it, killing its three defenders. He then placed flanking fire on the enemy positions in his vicinity, drawing the insurgents' fire to himself as he assaulted a second bunker. He was mortally wounded before he reached it. Private First Class Gines' extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty, at the cost of his life, were in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
