United States Army

Bronze Star with "V" Device

Private First Class Theodore E. George, RA15471007, Infantry, United States Army, 224th Infantry Regiment, distinguished himself by heroic achievement near Mandao-Ri, Korea, on 23 and 24 April 1953. Private George, with three of his comrades, volunteered to man a listening post on a finger one hundred and twenty-five yards forward of the main line of resistance. Immediately after assuming command of the post, a seven man enemy patrol was spotted between the listening post and the friendly lines. Private GEORGE, calmly waiting in his position, heard the opening burst of friendly fire and immediately began spraying the enemy with deadly automatic weapon fire, inflicting many casualties and forcing them to withdraw. As the enemy began to retreat, Private GEORGE courageously exposed himself to enemy observation and fire to throw several hand grenades, blocking the enemy’s escape route. Private GEORGE’s accurate fire-power and decisive actions aided greatly in the success of the encounter and inflicted many casualties on the enemy. The gallant actions and calm demeanor of Private GEORGE earned him the admiration and respect of all who knew him. The heroic actions and dauntless devotion to duty displayed by Private GEORGE reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Army. Entered the Federal Service from Ohio.
