Why am I posting these awards?
I am posting these awards without a political or social agenda. Simply stated, I want the Medal of Honor citations disseminated as widely as possible so that the public may read these gripping accounts of American servicemen in combat during the Vietnam War.
Who am I?
My name is Neil Mishalov. I was drafted into the U.S. Army on 6 September 1967, and was discharged from active service on 12 April 1969. I never served in Vietnam. I was inducted into the Army at Fort Hamilton, New York. I received basic training at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, and advanced training at Redstone Arsenal, Alabama. On 23 January 1968, while I was stationed at Redstone Arsenal, the North Koreans captured the U.S. Navy intelligence ship USS Pueblo (AGER-2) which was gathering intelligence data near Wonsan, on the east coast of North Korea.
Perhaps that's why, shortly thereafter, I was sent to South Korea. I spent 13 months in South Korea as a member of the 8th Army. I was with the 83rd Ordnance Battalion, and served in the 7th Ordnance Company (Special Ammo). During my tour of duty in South Korea I was stationed approximately 20 miles south of Seoul in a small military compound adjacent to the village of Suk-Su Dong, which is located in An-Yang Ni province. Because I served a "hardship tour of duty," I was discharged after 19 months of active service. I received my honorable discharge at Fort Lewis, Washington. I now reside in Berkeley, California.
