    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 officer and enlisted men:

Sergeant KENNETH C. HUBER, US52113349, Infantry, Company "B", 65th Infantry Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. During the early morning hours of 11 June 1953, Company "B", occupying a vitally important segment of the main line of resistance in the vicinity of Kumhwa, Korea, was subjected to an intense barrage of artillery and mortar fire prior to an enemy reinforced company size assault. With the area enveloped by the enemy force, an attempt was made to contact the listening post sentinels but to no avail. With disregard for his personal safety, Sergeant HUBER volunteered to reach and assist his comrades in their return to friendly lines. In his movement through the embattled area, he was subjected to artillery and mortar fire which resulted in his being unable to reach the group. While moving back to the main line of resistance, he was met by an intense hail of small arms fire from the enemy seeking to encircle him. Displaying the courage and composure of a well trained combat soldier, he opened a path of approzch to thi platoon sector by responding with effective carbine fire, inflicting numerous casualties on the enemy. Sergeant HUBER'S outstanding heroism and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military service. Entered the Federal Service from Pennsylvania.
