Bernard Pickett
United States Army



Bernard Pickett, 35003257, Staff Sergeant, Infantry, 2nd Armored Group. For gallantry in action, on 12 and 13 October 1944, in Italy. Staff Sergeant Pickett came across a wounded soldier who had lost considerable blood and dug a foxhole which was being constantly swept by enemy fire. The two men remained in this position for the night and at daybreak Staff Sergeant Pickett lifted the wounded comrade out of the hole and carried him to a friendly outpost. His gallant and courageous action, in disregarding all thought of personal safety to remain with and assist a crippled fellow soldier in the face of enemy fire, unquestionably saved his comrade from death or capture and reflects a dauntless spirit of self-sacrifice deserving of the highest admiration and praise.
