Takes Pleasure in Presenting
The Distinguished Service Cross

Christopher Hamel Corriveau
Sergeant, U.S. Army

For Services as Set Forth in the Following


For exceptional valor and intrepid actions above and beyond the call of duty while serving with Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 2d Battalion, 505th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 3d Brigade Combat Team, 82d Airborne Division, while repelling an overwhelming and heavily armed enemy force on 26 August 2007 during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM 06-08. Specialist Corriveau's exceptional courage, tenacity and tactical prowess under intense enemy fire and close combat contributed to the defeat of a concerted enemy effort to overrun his sniper position. Surrounded and attacked by an enemy force ten times superior to that of his own, Specialist Corriveau and his fellow Paratroopers valiantly repelled the enemy attack with withering small arms fire and grenades. His four-man sniper team courageously fought off an overwhelming enemy force for control of the rooftop for over ten minutes in close combat, killing or wounding at least ten enemies in the process. His distinguished valor, unquestionable devotion to duty and loyalty to his fellow Paratroopers in the most dire of circumstances are in keeping with the finest traditions of military heroism and reflect great credit upon himself, Task Force Two Panther, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, Task Force Lightning, and the United States Army.
