Quirk, Chaplain John M.


Despite his serious injuries, he attempted to crawl back to the burning truck in order to render aid to the injured laborers.  His bravery and complete disregard for his personal safety were an inspiration to all who observed him.

[KWE Note: In the book, The History of the Chaplain Corps US Navy, Vol. 6, page 79, During the Korean War, the following was written by Chaplain Kelly regarding why Chaplain Quirk received the Bronze Star: "Chaplain John M. Quirk, Catholic Chaplain with the 5th Marines, was wounded yesterday.  His condition is not too serious, but he will not be available for duty in less than 2 months.  He was a victim of a land mine.  He received fragmentation wounds in the legs and right arm, a large wound in his left arm, and a contusion which caused quite a bit of swelling on the right side of his face.  However, his eye was not injured and they don't think any facial nerves were affected.  He also suffered shock.  I tried to get to him, but they flew him by 'copter to a rear medical company."
