    Feezy,

    PFC Garcia was assigned to "I" (known then as "Item") Company, of the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Marine Division. He received the CMOH as a result of injuries sustained with a further heroic attempt at suffocating a grenade after the first injuries were sustained. He was killed on 5 September, 1952 and it was President Eisenhower who signed the citation.

    My cousin was killed almost exactly a year earlier on 11 September, 1951 while serving with "I" Company of the 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division. His Platoon Commander received the CMOH that evening and this is who he was: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_H._Ramer

    Semper Fidelis,

    Gerry
