Lt Forbes was assigned as a Forward Observer to Battery C, 6th Battalion, 29th Field Artillery and attached to Company C, 3rd Battalion, 8th Infantry, 4th Infantry Division, when a helicopter carrying six (6) persons and a crew of four (4) lost power after take-off and crashed outside the perimeter. Disregarding the insecurity of the area and the imminent danger of explosion, Lt Forbes rushed to the scene of the downed helicopter. Removing the seriously injured pilot from the aircraft and danger, he returned to assist the remaining personnel to safety thus saving at least one life and preventing the other members from being more seriously injured.
