Silver Star

The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Private Dallas E. Johnson (MCSN: 309480), United States Marine Corps, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action as ambulance driver while serving with Marine Aircraft Group TWENTY-THREE during the bombing of Henderson Field, Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands, by enemy Japanese forces on the night of October 13-14, 1942.
With utter disregard for his own personal safety, Private Johnson voluntarily left his shelter and, under the fire of Japanese surface vessels and aircraft, made two hazardous trips to the field hospital with wounded personnel. His great courage and heroic devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
