He also returned a second time to the fire blanketed area to help retrieve a recoilless rifle and move it to a new position from where fire could be directed against the enemy. The courage and devotion to duty displayed by Private MAYSONET reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the military service from Puerto Rico.
