Timothy Nein
Staff Sergeant, U.S. Army

For Services as Set Forth in the Following

 

Citation:
For extraordinary heroism while serving as a Squad Leader with the 617th Military Police Company, 503d Military Police Battalion (Airborne), 18th Military Police Brigade, Multi-National Corps-Iraq, on 20 March 2005, while engaged in combat operations during Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. While patrolling a supply route, Staff Sergeant Nein's squad observed a convoy of semi-tractor trailers that was being ambushed by approximately 50 anti-Iraqi insurgents with automatic weapons and rocket propelled grenades. He responded by dismounting his squad and leading them in a counterattack to flank the enemy trench line. Still under heavy fire, Staff Sergeant Nein displayed great courage by directing an assault on an enemy trench line, firing his weapon and throwing hand grenades to suppress the enemy. His squad killed several insurgents, captured large quantities of weapons and ammunition, and saved the lives of numerous convoy members. Staff Sergeant Nein's bravery is in keeping with the finest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself, the 503d Military Police Battalion (Airborne), the 18th Military Police Brigade, and the United States Army.
