Silver Star

Albert Marinucci
United States Army



Technician Grade 4 Albert A. Marinucci, 35534692, 230th Field Artillery Battalion, United States Army, is awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action on 27 February 1945, in Germany. During an attack, the infantry force with which Technician Marinucci's forward observation party was serving was pinned down by fire from two enemy tanks. Despite this severe fire, Technician Marinucci and his comrades crawled to a ditch and began directing artillery fire on them. Although the tanks moved toward their position, he and his comrades continued directing fire. When the tanks withdrew, the infantry immediately secured their objective. Then later, when eight enemy tanks massed for a counter-attack, Technician Marinucci and his comrades remained in a hazardous position and directed artillery fire on the tanks, forcing them to withdraw.
