DSC Citation
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to First Lieutenant Thomas D. Pollard (MCSN: 0-14726/289992), United States Marine Corps Reserve, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with Company D, FIRST Marine Raider Battalion in action against the enemy at Enogai Point, New Georgia, Solomon Islands, on 7, 8, 10, and 20 July 1943. Leading the charge of his platoon in successful attacks on enemy positions near Enogai, First Lieutenant Pollard was credited with shooting four enemy snipers who were concealed in trees. Two days later his platoon was ordered to flank hostile machine-gun positions which held up the advance of two companies. Lieutenant Pollard led his platoon through the jungle to the enemy's flank and rear, knocked their gun positions out of action, killed many of the enemy and drove others into the sea. He then continued to lead the advance to the beach near Enogai Point where two machine guns were captured. In later attacks against well entrenched forces defending Bairoko, his platoon penetrated enemy positions and advanced to within 200 yards of the harbor which was defended by a concentration of 90-mm. mortar fire. The outstanding heroism and skill displayed by First Lieutenant Pollard on this occasion reflect highest credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States.

He was buried in 2010 at Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Arlington Co., VA, Findagrave #58117704.
