Souvenir, Stanley J.

´╗┐While serving with the US Army in Vietnam, retired Colonel Stanley J. Souvenir received the Air Medal with Valor for heroic actions during aerial flight on August 4, 1968. On that date he was serving as pilot of a UH-1C helicopter in support of military operations in the A Shau Valley, Republic of Vietnam. While his aircraft was receiving intense enemy ground fire, he provided accurate suppressive fire against enemy positions, which enabled the assault force to land and the helicopters to depart without taking any enemy rounds. Colonel Souvenir currently resides in Brownsboro.
