SFC Smith’s Medal Of Honor Story


Please come to the Cache Event being held April 4th. Check out:

SFC Paul R. Smith Memorial Event Cache for ongoing updates! Thanks Kevnjenn!



This cache is placed where a hero fought off an attack of Iraqi Insurgents to allow his soldiers to evacuate themselves and thier wounded. This soldier fought gallantly and was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions. You may have heard the story of SFC Paul Smith, the first and only MOH recipient of Operation Iraqi Freedom to date. Hopefully he will be the last. Take a moment and reflect on what happened at this site.

I have placed this cache because alot of soldiers have been asking where this site is. I believe it to have alot of historical value. I have posted a related web page to give the story of the battle that ensued at this site. I hope you enjoy the cache.

Citation For SFC Paul Smith
