 GENERAL ORDERS # 205 - 19 June 1951

SECOND LIEUTENANT DALE E. BROUGHTON, 01016508, Infantry, Tank Company,
65th Infantry, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. On 18 April
1951, in the vicinity of Yur-hyow, Korea, the task force of which Lieutenant
BROUGHTON was a member, came under heavy fire from the enemy. When his
tank became disabled while negotiating the rough terrain, making it a target
for enemy fire, Lieutenant BROUGHTON ordered the members of his crew to
strip the vehicle of all weapons and withdraw to the other tanks in the
platoon. Completely disregarding his personal safety, he climbed to the
top of his tank turret, manned the heavy machine gun and fired at enemy
emplacements, thereby furnishing cover for his crew as they escaped to
the safety of the other armored vehicles. Lieutenant BROUGHTON then dis-
mounted from his tank and crawled to another which he maneuvered into
position to fire directly at the hostile forces. Once again, exposing
himself to the fire of the enemy, he stood in the tank's turret and fired
at the enemy, causing him to retreat. Lieutenant BROGHTON'S gallantry
and extreme courage reflect great credit upon himself and exemplify the
highest traditions of the military service. Entered the military service
from the State of Ohio.
