GENERAL ORDERS - NUMBER 444 11 October 1953
AWARD OF THE BRONZE STAR MEDAL - By direction of the President, under the provisions of Executive Order 9419, 4 February 1944 (Sec II, WD Bul 3, 1944), and pursuant to authority in AR 600-45, the Bronze Star Medal with Letter "V" device for heroic achievement in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States is awarded to the following named officer and enlisted men:
Private First Class MANUEL A. GIULIANO, US51182045, Infantry, Company "G", 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the night of 22 July 1953, in the vicinity of Kumhwa, Korea, the communications lines between the listening post on Hill "326" and the company command post on nearby hill "373" had been damaged by the intense enemy artillery and mortar fire. Private GUILIANO, a wireman, immediately volunteered to move into the terrain under fire and repair the wires. Disregarding his safety, he courageously proceeded across the rugged, mountinous terrain in search of the breaks. Upon locating the trouble, he rapidly and effectively mended the lines, enabling the necessary close coordination between the command post and listening post to be restored, and then safely returned to his position. Private GIULIANO'S outstanding heroism and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Connecticut.
