Original Item: One-of-a-kind Set. Lieutenant George J. Allison (ASN 33316444) from Ardmore, Pennsylvania received the Silver Star for Gallantry in Action in France in the Summer of 1944. His citation reads in part:
“Lieutenant Allison, was in charge of three men operating a radio relay station. It was discovered that an enemy force was approaching their position and Lieutenant Allison decided to hurriedly abandon the area. Upon departure the group came upon a force of 15 or 20 enemy troops. With utter disregard for his own safety, Lieutenant Allison stood erect in the cab of the vehicle, fired on the enemy and at the same time ordered his men to take cover. They dismounted from the vehicle and Lieutenant Allison led the group to safety in the woods. When approaching a farmhouse he again ordered his men to take cover while he investigated the building. Due to Lieutenant Allison’s quick thinking, forceful leadership, and bravery, escape was made by himself and two others and the heroism he displayed reflects great credit on himself and is in keeping with the highest traditions of the service.” A link to his citation record can be found here.
