Private First Class Reed A. Davis, 35855289, Infantry, United States Army, For gallantry in action near *** Luxembourg, on 25 December 1944. During the attack on ***, Company C was held up by machine gun fire from an enemy emplacement whose exact location could not be determined. Private First Class Davis, a company C rifleman, advanced ahead of the forward elements and exposed himself to draw the enemy fire. While thus engaged, he was struck and killed. His heroic act enabled his comrades to detect the location of the enemy emplacement and execute a flanking movement which resulted in neutralizing the automatic weapon. His courage under fire and aggressiveness in action reflect the highest credit upon Private First Class Davis and the armed forces of the United States.
