Russell Countian Avery Gene Smith received the Distingished Service Cross (only other award that is higher is the Medal of Honor). You can read his award order by clicking on data base page on His virtual wall page
You don't get this award for being coward.
I couldn't help but notice that Roger Leroy Conner, from Dunnville, KY, was KIA the same day and same battle as Gene Smith.
