65th Infantry, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. On 22 April 1951,
while Company "E" was attacking enemy-held positions in the vicinity of Chungsa-
ri, Korea, an automatic rifleman who was accompanying the forward elements was
seriously wounded by hostile small arms fire. Private FIGUEROA voluntarily
went to his stricken comrades assistance and successfully evacuated him to a
covered position. He then returned and put the abandoned automatic rifle back
into operation, thereby maintaining effective fire support for the assaulting
unit. Private FIGUEROA'S selfless gallantry materially contributed to the ulti-
mate success of the mission and reflects great credit upon himself and the
military service. Entered the military service from the State of New York.
