    AWARD OF THE BRONZE STAR MEDAL  - By direction of the President, under the provisions of Executive Order 9419, 4 February 1944 (Sec II, WD Bul 3, 1944), and pursuant to authority in AR 600-45, the Bronze Star Medal with Letter "V" device for heroic achievement in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States is awarded to the following named oficer and enlisted men:

Sergeant (then Private First Class) HERBERT D. MUSIC, US53112152, Army Medical Service, Medical Company, 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the night of 14 June 1953, in the vicinity of Sagimak, Korea, the company to which Sergeant MUSIC, an aidman, was attached commenced an assaulllt on enemy held Hill "412". As  the force approached the objective, it was subjected to intense enemy machine gun and small arms fire and sustained several casualties. Sergeant MUSIC immediately administered aid to the wounded and, with complete disregard for his personal safety, evacuated the seriously wounded personnel to a position where they would be picked up by a litter bearer team. On several occasions, he courageously advanced to within a few yards of enemy emplacements to assist a wounded comrade to safety. He was continually exposed to the enemy fire as he moved about the area and bravely remained on the shell-torn slope until all casualties had been removed. Sergeant MUSIC'S outstanding heroism and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Georgia.
