Believe to Make the Sale

Sales Makes it Happen by Scott Wheeler, CLFP

We all have heard the saying, A good salesperson can sell ice to an Eskimo. I never bought into that logic. However, I am positive I could sell a warm coat to an Alaskan native. I believe in the coat. I can visualize the benefits of warmth.

I strongly believe in the benefits provided by the commercial equipment finance and leasing industry. The industry supports small, medium, and large businesses throughout the country. The commercial equipment finance and leasing industry is a vital part of the US economy. The industry provides funds for all types of equipment that allow all types of businesses to grow and prosper. Growing businesses support families and individuals.

As a young originator, I once asked an owner of a trucking company why he funded his tractors and trailers through me and my company. He explained that I was a critical part of his company. He explained that the financing I provided allowed his company to have a newer fleet of trucks, which allowed him to win larger contracts, employ more people, move more product, and grow his company. He went on to explain that because of the financing I had provided over the previous few years, he was able to offer full time employment to more drivers. Those drivers had secure incomes and were able to provide better lives for themselves and their families. I became an instant believer in my products. I felt the warmth of the coat.

As a participant in the commercial equipment finance and leasing industry, you are supporting American businesses and improving the lives of many. Believe in your products; advocate for businesses; sell the warmth of a coat. Make a difference.

Chipotle Sets Goal to Slash Carbon Emissions 50%
By Kari Hamanaka, Orange County Business Journal

Chipotle in Newport Beach

More sustainable packaging and construction diversion on future restaurants are part of a plan Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. (NYSE: CMG) announced Thursday to cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 50%.

The Newport Beach-based restaurant chain said it intended to hit that target by 2030 and is basing the reduction off its 2019 emissions levels.

The restaurant operator, with nearly 2,900 restaurants and plans to eventually get to 6,000 in North America, outlined four areas its focused on in helping reach its goal. Those areas include more sustainable measures for restaurant development and remodels, emissions reductions for third-party delivery and other related transportation, food supply chain practices and packaging and waste diversion.

Chipotle shares rose 1.3% to $1,799.65 in midday trading Thursday for a market cap of $50.6 billion.

IOU Financial Surpasses $US 1 Billion in Loan Originations
and Establishes All-time Record in Quarterly Loan Originations

Company celebrates major milestone in its 12-year history
 of funding small business growth in North America

Atlanta, – IOU FINANCIAL INC.(IOU or the Company) (TSX-V: IOU), a leading online lender to small businesses (IOUFinancial.com), announced today that it has surpassed US$1B in total loan originations.

Robert Gloer, President and CEO, IOU Financial, declared, This is a major milestone for all IOU team members, partners and stakeholders.

In 12 years, the company has grown but our values have not changed: now more than ever we are committed to exceeding the expectations of our broker partners and the small business owners across North America who rely on our funding solutions to drive their growth plans.

In addition, IOU announced today that its loan originations for the quarter ended September 30, 2021 surpassed all previous records. The company originated over US$52 million in small business loans in Q3, a new high-water mark in the 12-year history of the company, representing a sequential growth of 51.5% vs. Q2 2021, and 183.1% over Q3 2020.

We are thrilled to surpass pre-pandemic loan origination numbers and start setting new all-time records for IOU Financial, said Robert Gloer, President and CEO. We remain cautiously optimistic that the economic recovery will continue despite the lingering potential macroeconomic and public health risks.

IOU Financial originated its first loan in December 2009 and quickly positioned itself as a trusted alternative to banks by helping small business owners get fast and easy access to funding visa its proprietary IOU360 technology platform. The Company continued funding small businesses throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and has subsequently introduced the industry-first IOU Financial Cash Back Loan and announced an-all-time record in monthly loan originations.

We faced the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic with the same entrepreneurial spirit that drove us to launch IOU Financial on the heels of the 2008 financial crisis – and both experiences have reinforced the importance of helping small businesses adapt to new challenges and grow added Gloer. Heres to the next 12 years of small business growth!

The Company is due to share its Q3 Financial Results in the coming weeks.

Chesswood Announces Third Quarter 2021 Results

TORONTO, /CNW/ - Chesswood Group Limited (Chesswood or the Company) (TSX: CHW), a publicly traded North American specialty finance company providing commercial equipment leases loans, business loans, and home improvement financing,  reported its results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

The Company reported consolidated International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) net income of $9.1 million in the three months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net income of $9.8 million in the same period in 2020, a decrease of $0.7 million year-over-year. Excluding the impact of provisions associated with COVID, net income is up $8.5 million year-over-year due to portfolio growth, lower charge-offs offset by higher operating costs.

On a constant currency basis to Q3 2020, net income would have been $2.5 million higher for the quarter (or $0.15 per share).

The U.S. Equipment Finance segment (Pawnee Leasing and Tandem Finance) reported interest revenue on leases and loans of $24.3 million and ancillary and other income of $3.1 million, a total increase of $3.6 million period-over-period. The increase is a result of continued strong originations throughout the period resulting in net portfolio growth.

The Canadian Equipment Finance segment reported interest revenue on leases and loans of $7.9 million and ancillary and other income of $1.7 million, a total increase of $6.0 million period-over-period. The increase is a result of a larger portfolio of receivables in our Canadian operations and a full quarter of results following the merger of Blue Chip and Vault Credit. Net Income for the three months would have been higher by $1 million excluding one-time costs associated with the merger.

Overall operating costs were up $7.1 million year-over-year to $16.8 million. Operating expenses were up primarily due to the previously announced merger as well as infrastructure supporting growth in the U.S. segment, resulting in an increase in average full-time employees for the period.

Free cash flow for the period was $10.2 million, up $5.6 million from Q3 2020. The increase in free cash flow is the result of low charge-offs in the period, compared to Q3 2020 and a larger overall receivables portfolio. In addition to these items, on a constant currency basis to Q3 2020, free cash flow would have been $2.1 million higher for the quarter.

Fernando's Reviews

Majestic sci-fi (Dune), absorbing drama (Stillwater), pulpy action (Copshop), stark chills (Old) and a spirited documentary (The Sparks Brothers) make for a particularly varied slew of streaming releases. Check 'em out.

Copshop (Vudu, iTunes): Bullets and quips fly with equal force in this entertaining actioner from hard-nosed genre specialist Joe Carnahan (The Grey). Set in a Nevada desert, it plays like an unofficial remake of John Carpenters Assault on Precinct 13, with a group of besieged characters fighting for their lives. Chief among them is Teddy (Frank Grillo), a gangland conman on the run from a hired killer named Bob (Gerard Butler, having a gnarly blast). Hoping to stay safe in jail, he assaults a rookie officer (Alexis Louder) and is thrown behind bars in a small-town jail. Things get even more volatile with the arrival of another assassin (Toby Huss), whos not about to let anything stand in the way of his goal. Steadily building to a slam-bang climax, the results overflow with pulpy thrills.

Dune (HBO Max): Long thought to be unfilmable, Frank Herberts epic science-fiction novel is brought to the screen in this sweeping adaptation from director Dennis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049). Taking place in the year 10191, the sprawling plot follows an intrigue spread out across several planets, mainly the eponymous one—a desert world where a mind-altering substance known as the spice is produced.  Paul Etreides (Timothée Chalamet) is a young man with visions of a strange future, showing signs of being a leader against malevolent forces led by Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgard). Teaming up with Chani (Zendaya), he must conquer his fears and face his destiny. Mining Herberts saga for visionary splendor, Villeneuves film offers undeniably impressive spectacle. The large cast includes Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem.

Old (Vudu, iTunes): A specialist of the uncanny, M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) presents his most inspired movie in years with this offbeat chiller set in a tropical beach straight out of The Twilight Zone. Into it step Guy (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Prisca (Vicky Krieps), a married couple hoping to get their minds off their divorce by taking their children to a beach resort. What they gradually realize is that the place is somehow rapidly aging them, which turns kids into adults and brings everyone closer to death over the course of a single day. Together with other tourists, they struggle to find a way out before its too late. Touching on the universal dread of mortality with stark intensity, Shyamalans film is a one-of-a-kind experience.

The Sparks Brothers (Netflix, Vudu, iTunes): While waiting for Edgar Wrights heady Last Night in Soho, check out the directors witty documentary on the pop and rock duo Sparks. Active since the early 1970s, the Sparks (brothers Ron and Russell Mae) have long been a most underrated group, celebrated by aficionados but never receiving the popularity they deserved. A self-described superfan, Wright captures the Sparks essence—a feeling of quirky cool, at once whimsical and subversive—with choice interviews and performances. We learn about how cinema influenced the siblings creativity starting with childhood trips to the movies, and how their style remained unique and electric after passing through so many different phases. The result is an endlessly spirited fusion of film and music.

Stillwater (Vudu, iTunes): Legal thriller meets familial drama in this absorbing story from Tom McCarthy, director of the Oscar-winning Spotlight. Loosely inspired by the real-life case of Amanda Knox, it centers on the prickly relationship between Allison (Abigail Breslin), a young American serving time in France for murder, and her father, Bill (Matt Damon). Previously estranged from his daughter, Bill now travels frequently from Oklahoma to visit her, and even tries to help her by locating a mysterious suspect who might exonerate her. While conducting his own investigation, he becomes involved with an aspiring actress, Virgine, (Camille Cottin) and her daughter (Lilou Slauvaud). Showcasing McCarthys unadorned sympathy and anchored by Damons sturdy performance, the film offers an affecting snapshot of cultural barriers, determination, and loneliness.

He began his first issue, exposing Governor William Cosby's corruption. Zenger was arrested on November 17, 1734 and charged with seditious libel. Zenger had reported that Governor William Cosby of New York had attempted to rig an election in Eastchester, PA, in 1733. Zenger was defended by lawyer Andrew Hamilton of Philadelphia, who convinced the jury that printing the truth does not constitute libel. His acquittal was seen as a vindication of the right of free speech and served as a precedent for freedom of the press.
1768 - William Johnson, the northern Indian Commissioner, signed a treaty with the Iroquois Indians to acquire much of the land between the Tennessee and Ohio rivers for future settlement.
1781 - John Hanson elected first President of the US in Congress assembled.
(Yes, John Hanson was the first president of the United States, not George Washington—who was the first president under the adopted constitution. Technically Hanson was the first president.)
1807 - Eliza Emily Chappell Porter (d. 1888) birthday, Geneseo, NY. She spent a lifetime organizing schools in several states. During the Civil War, she gathered and distributed supplies to Union soldiers and hospitals. She joined with Mary Ann Bickerdyke in nursing soldiers in Gen. Sherman's march through Georgia.
1850 - Ella Wheeler Wilcox (d. 1919) birthday, Johnstown, WI. Highly successful writer of popular novels and poetry who became the center of literary life in New York in the pre-World War I years. Her reputation was made by her Poems of Passion (1883). She wrote two autobiographies: The Story of a Literary Career (1905) and The Worlds and I (1918).
1857 - Ida Minerva Tarbell (d. 1944) birthday, Hatch Hollow, PA. She is recognized as one of the major journalists of her day, exposing the Standard Oil trust in History of Standard Oil Company. She was also a renowned biographer, especially of Lincoln. Her History of the Standard Oil Company, which first appeared in McClure's Magazine in nineteen installments, in 1904, was published in two volumes and drew immediate attention to the author. Her early reputation as a trust buster did not last for she had in a high degree developed a sense of fairness, and this was particularly reflected in her Life of Judge Gary, in which--contrary to all expectations--she had nothing but praise for Judge Gary. She wrote The Early Life of Abraham Lincoln in collaboration with W. J. McCan Davis. In 1900, her Life of Abraham Lincoln appeared in two volumes and is today a standard work. Other volumes on Lincoln by Miss Tarbell were He Knew Lincoln, Father Abraham, In Lincoln's Chair, Boy Scouts' Life of Lincoln, He Knew Lincoln and Other Billy Brown Stories, In the Footsteps of Lincoln and A Reporter for Lincoln. President Theodore Roosevelt characterized her as a muckraker, a compliment in those days. Tarbell was a lesbian and, in her later life, became intimate friends with Anne Morgan, the daughter of J. P. Morgan who was also a liberal Republican, feminist, and supporter of working women.
1862 - In Minnesota, more than 300 Santee Sioux are found guilty of raping and murdering Anglo settlers and are sentenced to hang. A month later, President Abraham Lincoln commuted all but 39 of the death sentences. One of the Indians was granted a last-minute reprieve but the other 38 were hanged simultaneously on December 26 in a bizarre mass execution witnessed by a large crowd of approving Minnesotans. The Santee Sioux were found guilty of joining in the so-called Minnesota Uprising, which was actually part of the wider Indian wars that plagued the West during the second half of the nineteenth century. For nearly half a century, Anglo settlers invaded the Santee Sioux territory in the beautiful Minnesota Valley and government pressure gradually forced the Indians to relocate to smaller reservations along the Minnesota River. At the reservations, the Santee were badly mistreated by corrupt federal Indian agents and contractors; during July 1862, the agents pushed the Indians to the brink of starvation by refusing to distribute stores of food because they had not yet received their customary kickback payments. The contractors callously ignored the Santees pleas for help. Outraged and at the limits of their endurance, the Santee finally struck back, killing Anglo settlers and taking women as hostages. The initial efforts of the U.S. Army to stop the Santee warriors failed and, in a battle at Birch Coulee, Santee Sioux killed 13 American soldiers and wounded another 47 soldiers. However, on September 23, a force under the leadership of General Henry H. Sibley finally defeated the main body of Santee warriors at Wood Lake, recovering many of the hostages and forcing most of the Indians to surrender. The subsequent trials of the prisoners gave little attention to the injustices the Indians had suffered on the reservations and largely catered to the popular desire for revenge. However, President Lincoln's commutation of the majority of the death sentences clearly reflected his understanding that the Minnesota Uprising had been rooted in a long history of Anglo abuse of the Santee Sioux.
1870 - One of the nation's first train robberies occurred when six men, led by Big Jack Davis, hopped aboard the eastbound express for Reno, forced the train to a stop, and rode off to Virginia City with $40,000 in minted coin. 10 hours later, as the delayed engine chugged into Independence, six army deserters jumped aboard to take $4490 that the Davis gang had overlooked. Within days, authorities captured all 13 bandits, who were sentenced variously from 10 to 15 years in prison.
1872 - Ulysses S. Grant was easily re-elected US president to a second term in office despite a split within the Republican Party that resulted in a defection of many key Republicans to opponent Horace Greeley. On November 29, 1872, after the popular vote but before the Electoral College was convened, Greeley died. As a result, electors previously committed to Greeley voted for four different candidates for President, and eight different candidates for Vice President. Despite the absence of life, Greeley himself still received three electoral votes, but these votes were disallowed by Congress. Henry Wilson, who was chosen by the Republicans to succeed Schuyler Colfax as Vice President, died on November 22, 1875.
1885 - Birthday of Will Durant (d. 1981) at North Adams, MA. American author and popularizer of history and philosophy. Among his books: The Story of Philosophy and The Story of Civilization (a 10-volume series of which the last four were co-authored by his wife, Ariel).
1893 - Birthday of Raymond Fernand Loewy (d. 1986), Paris, France. The father of streamlining, an inventor, engineer and industrial designer whose ideas changed the look of 20th-century life. His designs are evident in almost every area of modern life—the US Postal Service logo, the president's airplane, Air Force One, in streamlined automobiles, trains, refrigerators and pens. Between two products equal in price, function and quality, he said, the better looking will outsell the other.
1894 - The famous Election Day snowstorm hit southern New England, dumping up 10-12 inches of snow across Connecticut causing much damage to trees and wires. Winds at Block Island, RI gusted to 60 mph
1895 - Attorney George Baldwin Selden of Rochester, NY, was granted the first patent for a car. He was the first to have an original application for the internal combustion hydrocarbon motor to a road vehicle. His design resembled a horse-drawn carriage, with high wheels and a buckboard.
1895 - Charles MacArthur (d. 1956), born Scranton, Pennsylvania. American journalist, dramatist, screenwriter, much of his work was written with Ben Hecht, including The Front Page (1928), a farce about a star reporter drawn into his own story, and Twentieth Century (1932), a lively satire of the entertainment industry.
1901 – Ban Johnson and Charles Comiskey leased Sportsmans Park in St. Louis for five years for an American League team. Two weeks later it is announced the Milwaukee Brewers franchise will become the St. Louis Browns in 1902. In 1953, the Browns moved to Baltimore under new ownership and became the Baltimore Orioles.
1912 – Democrat Woodrow Wilson won the United States presidential election in a landslide, becoming the only president to defeat two former presidents in one election. Thomas R. Marshall was elected vice president. The electoral vote was Wilson, 435: Theodore Roosevelt, Progressive Party, 88: William Howard Taft, Republican, 8. The popular vote was Wilson 6,293,454: Roosevelt, 4,119,538: Taft, 3,484,980: Eugene V. Debs, Socialist candidate, 900,672, Eugene W. Chafin, Prohibitionist candidate, 206,275. In congressional elections the Democrats took a 51-44 majority in the Senate, with one minor party seat, and 291-127 majority in the House, with 17 seats going to minor parties.
1912 - Roy Rogers birthday, born Leonard Slye (d. 1998) at Cincinnati, OH. Known as the King of the Cowboys, his many songs included Don't Fence Me In and Happy Trails to You. He made his acting debut in Under Western Stars in 1935 and later hosted his own show, The Roy Rogers Show, in 1951.
1913 - Los Angeles receives its first piped-in water from Owens Valley, 200 miles northeast of the city. As part of Bureau of Land Reclamation efforts to irrigate the valley for small farmers and homesteaders, J.B. Lippincott began surveying in 1903. He convinced local farmers to relinquish their water rights to him, casting an impression that he would use the water to improve the valley. He and powerful Los Angeles friends, meanwhile, quietly planned to export it through a 200-mile aqueduct. The syndicate, which included Harry Chandler of the Los Angeles Times, began buying huge amounts of San Fernando Valley land. On Lippincott's recommendation, the California reclamation chief dropped the Owens redevelopment plan and yielded the water to the city. Now that the water is flowing, the value of Chandler's land has multiplied to $120 million, 40 times more than what he paid. When he died as the largest land baron in Southern California, Chandler's estate was worth half a billion dollars.
1915 - Marines under Major Smedley D. Butler captured the stronghold at Fort Capois, Haiti. Butler led a reconnaissance force of twenty-six volunteers in pursuit of a Caco force that had killed ten Marines. Like the Cacos in the mountains, he and his men lived for days off the orange groves. For over a hundred miles they followed a trail of peels, estimating how long before the Cacos had passed by the dryness of the peels. A native guide they picked up helped them locate the Cacos' headquarters, a secret fort called Capois, deep in the mountain range. Studying the mountaintop fort through field glasses, Butler made out thick stone walls, with enough activity to suggest they were defended by at least a regiment. He decided to return to Cape Haitien for reinforcements and capture it. On the way back, they were ambushed by a force of Cacos that outnumbered them twenty to one. Fortunately, it was a pitch-black night, and Butler was able to save his men by splitting them up to crawl past the Cacos' lines through high grass. Just before dawn he reorganized them into three squads of nine men each. Charging from three directions as they yelled wildly and fired from the hip, they created such a fearful din that the Cacos panicked and fled, leaving seventy-five killed. The only Marine casualty was one man wounded. When he was able to return with reinforcements, spies had alerted the Cacos, and Butler took a deserted Fort Capois without firing a shot.
1918 - ALLWORTH, EDWARD C., Medal of Honor
Rank and organization: Captain, U.S. Army, 60th Infantry, 5th Division. Place and date: At Clery-le-Petit, France, 5 November 1918. Entered service at: Corvallis, Oregon. Born: 6 July 1887, Crawford, Wash. G.O. No.: 16, W.D., 1919. Citation: While his company was crossing the Meuse River and canal at a bridgehead opposite Clery-le-Petit, the bridge over the canal was destroyed by shell fire and Capt. Allworth's command became separated, part of it being on the east bank of the canal and the remainder on the west bank. Seeing his advance units making slow headway up the steep slope ahead, this officer mounted the canal bank and called for his men to follow. Plunging in he swam across the canal under fire from the enemy, followed by his men. Inspiring his men by his example of gallantry, he led them up the slope, joining his hard-pressed platoons in front. By his personal leadership he forced the enemy back for more than a kilometer, overcoming machinegun nests and capturing 100 prisoners, whose number exceeded that of the men in his command. The exceptional courage and leadership displayed by Capt. Allworth made possible the re-establishment of a bridgehead over the canal and the successful advance of other troops.
1946 - Chuck Connors of the Boston Celtics became the first NBA player to shatter a backboard, doing so during the pre-game warm-up in Boston Garden. Connors also played Major League baseball with the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Chicago Cubs and gained fame as star of the television series, The Rifleman. My father, Lawrence Menkin, wrote many of the episodes.
1935 - The game Monopoly was introduced by the Parker Brothers Company.
1936 – The Brooklyn Dodgers named former pitcher and future Hall of Famer Burleigh Grimes their new manager. Grimes replaced another future Hall of Famer – Casey Stengel.
1940 - President Roosevelt won an unprecedented third term in office, beating Republican challenger Wendell L. Willkie. Henry A. Wallace was elected vice president.

The popular vote was Roosevelt 27,244,160: Willkie, 22,305,198: Norman Thomas, Socialist candidate, 100,264: Roger W. Babson, Prohibition candidate, 57,812: Earl Browder, Communist, 48,579: John W. Aiken, Socialist Labor candidate, 14,861. In congressional elections, the Democrats lost three Senate seats but kept a 66-28 majority, with two seats going to minor parties. In the House, the Democrats gained seven seats for a 268-162 lead, with five seats going to minor parties.

Rank and organization: Corporal, U S. Army, Company E, 19th Infantry Regiment, 24th Infantry Division. Place and date: Near Chonghyon, Korea, 5 November 1950. Entered service at: Merrilan Wis. Born: 2 July 1924, Hatfield, Wis. G.O. No.: 26, 25 April 1951. Citation: Cpl. Red Cloud, Company E, distinguished himself by conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty in action against the enemy. From his position on the point of a ridge immediately in front of the company command post he was the first to detect the approach of the Chinese Communist forces and give the alarm as the enemy charged from a brush-covered area less than 100 feet from him. Springing up he delivered devastating pointblank automatic rifle fire into the advancing enemy. His accurate and intense fire checked this assault and gained time for the company to consolidate its defense. With utter fearlessness he maintained his firing position until severely wounded by enemy fire. Refusing assistance he pulled himself to his feet and wrapping his arm around a tree continued his deadly fire again, until he was fatally wounded. This heroic act stopped the enemy from overrunning his company's position and gained time for reorganization and evacuation of the wounded. Cpl. Red Cloud's dauntless courage and gallant self-sacrifice reflects the highest credit upon himself and upholds the esteemed traditions of the U.S. Army.

1966 - BAKER, JOHN F., JR., Medal of Honor
Rank and organization: Sergeant (then Pfc.), U.S. Army, Company A, 2d Battalion, 27th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division. Place and date: Republic of Vietnam, 5 November 1966. Entered service at: Moline, Ill. Born: 30 October 1945, Davenport, Iowa. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. En route to assist another unit that was engaged with the enemy, Company A came under intense enemy fire and the lead man was killed instantly. Sgt. Baker immediately moved to the head of the column and together with another soldier knocked out 2 enemy bunkers. When his comrade was mortally wounded, Sgt. Baker, spotting 4 Viet Cong snipers, killed all of them, evacuated the fallen soldier and returned to lead repeated assaults against the enemy positions, killing several more Viet Cong. Moving to attack 2 additional enemy bunkers, he and another soldier drew intense enemy fire and Sgt. Baker was blown from his feet by an enemy grenade. He quickly recovered and single-handedly destroyed 1 bunker before the other soldier was wounded. Seizing his fallen comrade's machine gun, Sgt. Baker charged through the deadly fusillade to silence the other bunker. He evacuated his comrade, replenished his ammunition and returned to the forefront to brave the enemy fire and continue the fight. When the forward element was ordered to withdraw, he carried 1 wounded man to the rear. As he returned to evacuate another soldier, he was taken under fire by snipers, but raced beyond the friendly troops to attack and kill the snipers. After evacuating the wounded man, he returned to cover the deployment of the unit. His ammunition now exhausted, he dragged 2 more of his fallen comrades to the rear. Sgt. Baker's selfless heroism, indomitable fighting spirit, and extraordinary gallantry were directly responsible for saving the lives of several of his comrades, and inflicting serious damage on the enemy. His acts were in keeping with the highest traditions of the U.S. Army and reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of his country.
1966 - FOLEY, ROBERT F., Medal of Honor
Rank and organization: Captain, U.S. Army, Company A, 2d Battalion, 27th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division. Place and date: Near Quan Dau Tieng, Republic of Vietnam, 5 November 1966. Entered service at: Newton, Mass. Born: 30 May 1941, Newton, Mass. Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. Capt. Foley's company was ordered to extricate another company of the battalion. Moving through the dense jungle to aid the besieged unit, Company A encountered a strong enemy force occupying well concealed, defensive positions, and the company's leading element quickly sustained several casualties. Capt. Foley immediately ran forward to the scene of the most intense action to direct the company's efforts. Deploying 1 platoon on the flank, he led the other 2 platoons in an attack on the enemy in the face of intense fire. During this action both radio operators accompanying him were wounded. At grave risk to himself he defied the enemy's murderous fire and helped the wounded operators to a position where they could receive medical care. As he moved forward again 1 of his machine gun crews was wounded. Seizing the weapon, he charged forward firing the machine gun, shouting orders and rallying his men, thus maintaining the momentum of the attack. Under increasingly heavy enemy fire he ordered his assistant to take cover and, alone, Capt. Foley continued to advance firing the machine gun until the wounded had been evacuated and the attack in this area could be resumed. When movement on the other flank was halted by the enemy's fanatical defense, Capt. Foley moved to personally direct this critical phase of the battle. Leading the renewed effort, he was blown off his feet and wounded by an enemy grenade. Despite his painful wounds he refused medical aid and persevered in the forefront of the attack on the enemy redoubt. He led the assault on several enemy gun emplacements and, single-handedly, destroyed 3 such positions. His outstanding personal leadership under intense enemy fire during the fierce battle which lasted for several hours, inspired his men to heroic efforts and was instrumental in the ultimate success of the operation. Capt. Foley's magnificent courage, selfless concern for his men and professional skill reflect the utmost credit upon himself and the U.S. Army.
