Stephen Raymond Gregg



Fading light dims the sight,
And a star gems the sky,
    Gleaming bright.
From afar drawing nigh,    
    Falls the night.

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the lake, From the hills,
    From the sky.
All is well, safel
y rest,
    God is nigh.

Then good night, Peaceful night,
Till the light of the dawn
    Shineth bright,
God is near, do not fear,
  Friend, good night.

Technical Sergeant Gregg put his machineguns into action to cover the advance of riflemen near Montelimar, France. Each time a medical aid man attempted to reach the wounded, the Germans fired at him. Gregg took one of the .30-caliber machineguns, and firing from the hip, started boldly up the hill with the medical aid man following him. Despite a hail of enemy grenades, he remained and fired into the enemy positions while the aid man removed the seven wounded men. He was covered by four Germans who ordered him to surrender nearby friendly riflemen distracted them. The four enemy hit the ground and Gregg recovered a pistol from one of them and managed to escape. He manned a gun, firing at his captors, killed one of and wounded another. The following morning prior to daybreak, the Germans launched a strong attack, supported by tanks. As they moved along the valley Sergeant Gregg ordered his mortars into action. He was able to direct effective fire on the enemy, inflicting heavy casualties. When informed that the section had been captured by the enemy, he ordered the two men to cover him, crawled up, threw a hand grenade into the German position, and then charged it, killed the enemy, and put his mortars back into action.
