On 26 April 1951, the 2nd Battalion, 65th Infantry was attacked by an estimated enemy force of two regiments near Ilbisang-ni, Korea. The enemy force, securing the commanding terrain surrounding the command post and isolating it from the rest of the battalion, brought the command post and aid station under intense fire. Lieutenant NYMAN with complete disregard for his safety, organized the evacuation and security of the wounded, and the defense of the aid station. He repeatedly abandoned covered positions in order to organize and lead litter teams to successfully evacuate the wounded. Lieutenant NYMAN'S heroism and initiative reflect the highest credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the military service from the State of New York.
