Citation:   For gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of
his life above and beyond the call of duty on 16 November 1944, in Germany.
T/Sgt. Lindsey assumed a position about 10 yards to the front of his platoon
during an intense enemy infantry-tank counterattack, and by his unerringly
accurate fire destroyed 2 enemy machinegun nests, forced the withdrawal
of 2 tanks, and effectively halted enemy flanking patrols. Later, although
painfully wounded, he engaged 8 Germans, who were reestablishing machinegun
positions, in hand-to-hand combat, killing 3, capturing 3, and causing
the other 2 to flee. By his gallantry, T/Sgt. Lindsey secured his unit's
position, and reflected great credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.
