During landing operations at Warambari Bay in Vella Lavella on 5 October, 1943, Private McCullough was wounded in both hands and in the leg by an enemy light machinegun. In spite of his wounds he continued to fight at close quarters, picking up and returning a Japanese grenade which had landed near him. The grenade killed one of the enemy. His courage and determination were an inspiration to the remainder of his platoon.
