On the afternoon of 9 June 1953, Private WARNER, a medical aidman, accompanied the supporting element in a patrol which had the mission of assaulting Hill "412" in the vicinity of Sagimak, Korea. During the attack, he was informed that there were several seriously wounded men with the assault group. With complete disregard for his personal safety, he immediately went forward to their aid, exposing himself to intense enemy hand grenade and small arms fire. After administering every aid possible under the conditions, he helped evacuate the wounded men to a place where they could be removed to a hospital. He repeated this process several times in the course of the fire fight and rested only when he was assured that the wounded men had been efficiently assisted and evacuated. His actions resulted in the alleviation of much suffering and the saving of many lives. Private WAREN'S outstanding heroism and devotionto duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Pennsylvania.
