Private First Class RAMON DELGADO GONZALEZ, US29145588, Infantry, Company "B", 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the morning and afternoon of 17 July 1953, in the vicinity of Sinmok-Tong, Korea, Company "B" assaulted enemy held Hill "433". In the action, many friendly casualties were sustained and volunteers were needed to retrieve and evacuate the wounded attackers. Although fully aware of the dangers involved, Private DELGADO GONZALEZ bravely volunteered for the mission and soon began moving up the fire swept slope toward a wounded United Nations soldier lying close to enemy fortifications. Despite the intense defensive fire, he courageously advanced toward the enemy and succeeded in reaching the casualty. Private DELGADO GONZALEZ then valiantly moved back down the slope with the casualty but was mortally wounded by an exploding enemy mortar round before he could reach shelter. Private DELGADO GONZALEZ' outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Puerto Rico.
