1940-45~The Intrepid Tommy Prince

Tommy Prince, descendant of Peguis, the Saulteaux Chief, became an expert in reconnaissance in WW II. Tommy Prince also served in the Korean War and was the most decorated Canadian Aboriginal.

When Prince was recommended for the Silver Star, an American army decoration for gallantry in action, his citation was glowing.

So accurate was the report rendered by the patrol that sergeant prince’s regiment moved forward on 5 September 1944, occupied new heights and successfully wiped out the enemy bivouac [encampment] area. The keen sense of responsibility and devotion to duty displayed by sergeant prince is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the armed forces of the allied nations.
