Corporal EDWARD F. DURBORO, US51171960, Infantry, Medical Company, 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the early morning hours of 6 July 1953, in the vicinity of Haduch'on, Korea, Company "K" began an attack on enemy held Hill "250". Although the assault squads were soon subjected to intense automatic weapons and grenade fire, Corporal DURBOROW, a medical aidman, moved up and down the skirmish line administering aid to the wounded. Later, the attacking force suffered a number of casualties which required immediate evacuation. With complete disregard for his personal safety, he took up a position on the second crest of the hill where he could see the wounded and effectively directed the litter bearers in their operations. In the ensuing action, many members of the first assault squad became casualties when subjected to an intense artillery and mortar barrage. Despite the enemy fire, he immediately moved to the aid of his wounded comrades and was last seen attempting to reach a friendly casualty lying in an exposed forward area. Corporal DURBOROW'S outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from New Jersey.
