Personal CourageColonel Jack L. Treadwell epitomized the Army Value of Personal Courage perhaps as no other soldier in the history of the nation. During his 33 years of service, he earned every medal of valor possible for a member of the United States Army. For his extreme heroism in Germany on March, 1945, he was awarded the Medal of Honor, the United States' highest decoration. For his courage in other actions in World War II, he received the Distinguished Service Cross (the US's second highest decoration) and the French government awarded him the Croix de Guerre. By the time of the Vietnam War, Jack Treadwell had risen to the rank of Colonel and commanded the American Division's 11th Brigade. He was twice decorated for heroism by the United States for his uncommon valor in Vietnam. He also was awarded the Cross of Gallantry by the South Vietnamese government.
