 GENERAL ORDERS # 171 - 29 May 1951

CORPORAL DOMINGO MIRANDA ROSADO, RA20022645, Infantry, Company "M", 65th Infantry, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. On 16 December 1950, near Sansong-ni, Korea, a large enemy force, under cover of intense fire, succeeded in penetrating positions defended by the machine gun platoon of Company "M", 65th Infantry. Securing a light machine gun, Corporal MIRANDA ROSADO, accompanied by the platoon sergeant and an aid man, left the platoon command post and attempted to go forward to the machine gun positions but, in the darkness and confusion, the platoon sergeant was wounded. Firing his machine gun from the hip, Corpral MIRANDA ROSADO successfully diverted the attention of the enemy, which enabled the aid man to rush forward and render medical assistance to the stricken soldier. Despite the fact that he was wounded by grenade fragments, Corporal MIRANDA ROSADO chose to remain in his exposed position and alone held off the enemy until the wounded man was evacuated. The outstanding gallantry and selfless devotion to duty displayed by Corporal MIRANDA ROSADO reflect great credit upon himself and exemplify the high traditions of the military service. Entered the military service from Puerto Rico.
