Sergeant Harold J Moots Sr. Class of 2008

Silver Star Medal

United States Army

Silver Star Medal

Harold J. Moots, 35469111, Sergeant, Company C, 634th Tank Destroyer Battalion. For gallantry in action in the vicinity of Drove, Germany, 26 February 1945. When the enemy launched a savage attack, Sergeant Moots, despite an intense self-propelled, small arms and cannon barrage, fearlessly directed a vehicle across perilous terrain to an exposed vantage point. Then, although painfully wounded, he skillfully placed fire upon hostile tanks and compelled the Germans to withdraw. Sergeant Moots’ gallant actions and exemplary leadership reflect great credit upon the Army of the United States. Residence at enlistment: Dayton, Ohio.
