CITATION:
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action on 26 January 1967 while serving with Company "F", Second Battalion, Fifth Marines, in Quang Nam Province, Republic of Vietnam, As the company senior corpsman during a search and destroy operation against communist
insurgent forces. Petty Officer Geise was present when lead elements of the company came under heavy small-arms, automatic-weapons, and mortar fire from a numerically superior Viet Cong force. Without hesitation, he moved to the position of the lead elements and, despite the
hazards involved, commenced treating the wounded and assisting in their evacuation to a more secure area. Observing one seriously wounded Marine in an area swept by enemy fire. Petty Officer Geise moved to the Marine's; position nnd commenced medico! treatment. Although painfully wounded, he continued treatment of the Marine until he, himself , was mortally wounded by a burst of enemy machine-gun fire. Petty Officer Geise's bravery and inspiring devotion to duty were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
