First Lieutenant Salvador Jimenez Junior, 0954379, Medical Service
Corps, Medical Company 65th Infantry, 3d Infantry Division, United States
Army. On 4 February, 1951 in the vicinity of Chemchan, Korea, Company "I",
65th Infantry, was attacking hill 561. Lieutenant Jimenez who was in
charge of a litter bearing group, led them to the scene of the engagement.
He unhesitatingly supervised and helped to remove the wounded and dead while
the engaged company was still under heavy enemy small arms fire. When all
available litters had been used for the wounded, he immediately directed
his men to improvise litters, using those to evacuate the dead. Lieutenant
Jimenez exposed himself to enemy small arms fire many times in order to
remove the wounded to safety. The determination and disregard for personal
safety displayed by Lieutenant Jimenez served as an inspiration to all and
reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the
military service from Puerto Rico.
