Biography


George R. Hutchinson was born on March 22, 1947.  His home of record is New Providence, NJ.

Hutchinson served in the US Army and attained the rank of Sergeant (SGT).  He was assigned to 2nd Platoon, B Company, 1st Battalion, 46th Infantry Regiment, 198 Infantry Brigade.

Hutchinson was killed in action on March 4, 1968.

He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star.  His citation reads:
For distinguishing himself by outstanding meritorious service in connection with ground operations against a hostile force in the Republic of Vietnam during the period October 1967 to March 1968.

Through his untiring efforts and professional ability, he consistently obtained outstanding results.  He was quick to grasp the implications of new problems with which he was faced as a result of the ever-changing situations inherent in a counterinsurgency operation and to find ways and means to solve those problems.  The energetic application of his extensive knowledge has materially contributed to the efforts of the United States mission to the Republic of Vietnam to assist that country in ridding itself of the communist threat to its freedom.

His initiative, zeal, sound judgment and devotion to duty have been in the highest tradition of the United States Army and reflect great credit on him and on the military service.
