Lance Corporal Camille was leading a combined patrol when he came under heavy enemy machine gun fire.

Exposing himself to enemy fire, Lance Corporal Camille was establishing a cordon around a building suspected to be occupied by the enemy, when he spotted a vehicle from which enemy fire had originated from moments earlier. He immediately directed his team to stop and search the vehicle. The vehicle was then thoroughly searched, and two enemy insurgents were detained. Because of Lance Corporal Camille’s superb leadership, his squad effectively denied the enemy an escape route. Lance Corporal Camille’s initiative, perseverance and total dedication to duty reflected credit upon him and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.
