AWARD OF THE SILVER STAR. ---By direction of the President, under the provisions of the Act of Congress, approved 9 July 1918 (WD Bul 43, 1918). and pursuant to authority in AR 600-45, the Silver Star for gallantry in action is awarded to the following-named enlisted men:
Sergeant First Class Earl F. DOROW, RA16361786, Infantry, Company "B", 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the afternoon of 17 July 1953, in the vicinity of Kumhwa, Korea, several members of Sergeant DOROW'S platoon unknowingly entered a minefield while returning from a patrol and sustained a number of casualties. Learning of the incident, Sergeant DOROW immediately organized a rescue pary and courageously guided the group into the mined area to evacuate the trapped men. Suddenly, the enemy commenced to fire heavy artillery and mortar concentrations on the rescue operation. Disregarding the bombardment, he remained exposed to the fire and repeatedly made trips through the mined terrain until all personnel had been safely removed. Sergeant DOROW'S outstanding gallantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Wisconsin.
