Gregory B. Allcut

The President of the United States takes great pleasure in presenting the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross to Gregory L. Allcut, Captain, United States Army, Troop C, 1st Squadron (Airmobile) 9th Cavalry, for heroism while participating in aerial flight evidenced by voluntary action above and beyond the call of duty in the Republic of Cambodia. Captain Allcut distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous actions on 16 May 1970, while serving as pilot in the Republic of Cambodia. When a scout craft reported taking heavy ground to air fire, Captain Allcut attacked the enemy positions. As he made a pass over the enemy location he took some hits but returned again and silenced the position. His outstanding flying ability and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United states Army.
