MSG Gary Gordon, Medal of Honor:
On October 3rd, 1993, MSG Gordon, while serving as sniper team leader, volunteered to be inserted into the crash site of a downed helicopter that was undergoing intense enemy fire. Despite being denied at first, MSG Gordon insisted on providing aid and was eventually granted permission to assist. Equipped with only a sniper rifle and a pistol, he and his fellow sniper, SFC Randall Shughart, fought their way to the injured helicopter crew and established a perimeter, leaving themselves in the most vulnerable position as they protected the pilot and crew. They fought valiantly until their ammunition was all but depleted. SFC Shughart was fatally wounded. MSG Gordon recovered a rifle with the last five rounds of ammunition from the helicopter and handed it to the pilot with the words “good luck”. MSG Gordon was then also fatally wounded. His actions saved the pilot’s life. MSG Gordon was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for these actions above and beyond the call of duty.



The Memorial:


The memorial will be a lifesize bronze likeness of MSG Gordon atop a granite base. The base will have two bronze plaques; one with his Medal of Honor citation and one with a list of all of the names of the men in Operation Gothic Serpent. This will be the only memorial in existence that recognizes and honors all of these men.

The memorial will be constructed by artist Douwe Blumberg. Blumberg is a renowed artist who has created numerous works, such as the famous America’s Response Monument (The Horse Soldier) in New York City and the Nevada State Veterans Memorial in Las Vegas. The memorial will reside in Veterans’ Park in Lincoln, Maine.

The Funds:


All funds are being accepted through The Special Forces Charitable Trust, a certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Donations are 100% tax deductible. All of the net funds will be put towards the construction of the memorial.
