His Citation Reads:

SGM Taylor was assisting the Battalion Survey Team in conducting a crater analysis of impacted mortar rounds when the enemy succeeded in hitting the ammunition storage area, setting it on fire. SGM Taylor rushed to the ammo dump with a water truck in a attempt to extinguish the blaze. Acquiring the proper range, the enemy continued to land mortar rounds inside the dump forcing SGM Taylor to seek cover. When the incoming rounds subsided, he returned to the fire which was now completely out of control and detonating the stored ammunition. Reluctantly he returned to the crater analysis team and assisted in accomplishing their mission.
