W kwietniu udało nam się trochę poszaleć. Miesiąc otworzyliśmy manewrami i tak też udało nam się go zamknąć.

Podmokłe tereny, łąki i rozlewiska idealnie nadawały się do pozimowego powrotu w rekonstruowanie klimatów normandzkich... chociaż wieczorową porą bliżej było do realiów walk w Ardenach.

Tym samym akumulatory zostały porządnie naładowane.

Minione Prima Aprilis było zarazem szóstymi urodzinami grupy. Tym razem tortu nie było... lepiej nie mieszać.

Zrobiliśmy sobie reko-kwietniówkę!

Plaża nad jeziorem, ognisko, francuskie racje, kiełbasa z ogniska... lody, nieśmiertelny "winopodobny napój musujący", którego jedyna słuszna nazwa pisana jest cyrylicą dopełniły wakacyjnego klimatu naszego spotkania. Spotkania bądź co bądź... oczywiście w celach rekonstrukcyjnych... dlatego poza lansowaniem się w szpeju odbębniliśmy chociaż ćwiczenia z musztry indywidualnej i zespołowej.

Życzymy sobie żeby kolejne rocznice również wypadały w podobnych okolicznościach przyrody i takiej aurze.

Distinguished Service Cross
George H. Craft

Citation:
The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to George H. Craft (0-1297146), First Lieutenant (Infantry), U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with the 502d Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, in action against enemy forces on 21 September 1944 in the vicinity of Saint Oedenrode, Holland. When his platoon came under enemy small arms fire, Lieutenant Craft raced across the distance separating him from the enemy position, firing his weapon into the enemy foxholes routing them from their positions, and capturing five of them. As his platoon continued to move forward, it came under the fire of an estimated enemy company. With total disregard for personal safety, Lieutenant Craft charged forward across an open field, his troops deploying behind him. The fury of his charge carried his platoon forward and caused the enemy to break. In overrunning the enemy position, his platoon captured thirty eight of the enemy. While his platoon reorganized, Lieutenant Craft pushed forward on a personal reconnaissance of a nearby house. Observing it to be an enemy headquarters, he charged forward alone, and by the use of hand grenades, drove out the enemy and captured eleven prisoners. First Lieutenant Craft's intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 101st Airborne Division, and the United States Army.

Distinguished Service Cross
Fred O. Drennan

Captain Fred O. Drennan, 0-383382, Parachute Infantry, for extraordinary heroism in action at Best, the Netherlands on 18 September 1944. While leading his unit in an attack against very heavy enemy resistance, Captain Drennan, although severely wounded, refused to be evacuated and continued to lead the attack displaying superior skill and determination. While under intense enemy machine gun fire, Captain Drennan located an 88mm gun in a woods and after emplacing a 60mm mortar directed its fire so accurately that the entire enemy gun crew was destroyed. Then, with utter disregard for his personal safety, he advanced fearlessly over an open field and though armed only with a rifle annihilated an enemy machine gun crew that had been firing on his mortar position. Later, while continuing the attack he was mortally wounded. Captain Drennan’s great personal courage, gallant leadership and devotion to duty so inspired his men that they continued with grimmer determination to carry their ultimate objective.

Distinguished Service Cross
Frank P. Garofano

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to Private First Class Frank P. Garofano, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with Company G, 502d Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, in action against enemy forces on 19 September 1944, near Best, Holland. The enemy attacked from three sides and supported by artillery and mortar fire, threatened to envelop his company. He fired his sub machine gun at the advancing enemy, killing nine and wounding three. Aware that his platoon's assault was impaired by the intense fire, he instructed a comrade cover him while he moved to the flank in an attempt to enter an enemy held house. Crawling forward, he reached a position ten feet from his objective. He threw a hand grenade into the house, forcing out its hostile occupants. Other forces immediately directed fire on him. Firing on the enemy with his gun he effected the surrender of ninety three and wounded approximately thirty. Private First Class Garofano's intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 101st Airborne Division, and the United States Army.

Distinguished Service Cross
Floyd P. Marquart

Citation:
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Private First Class Floyd P. Marquart (ASN: 38207751), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving as a Medical Aidman with Company C, 1st Battalion, 502d Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, in action against enemy forces in Belgium, on 29 December 1944. On that date, near Longchamps, Belgium, an attacking soldier of the 502d Parachute Infantry was struck in the throat by a shell fragment and was near death from suffocation. Without hesitation, Private First Class Marquart made his way through intense enemy fire to where the wounded soldier lay and there under fire, in a few critical seconds, calmly performed a delicate surgical operation, cutting the man's throat with his belt knife and ingeniously inserting a piece of his thermometer case in the opening to permit breathing. Then, still under fire he dragged the wounded man seventy-five yards across an open field to a position from which he could be evacuated. Private First Class Marquart was killed in later action while giving aid to another wounded soldier on the battlefield but his heroism lives on as a constant inspiration to his comrades. Private First Class Marquart's skill and courageous and supreme devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 101st Airborne Division, and the United States Army.
