Pfc George Bowen

Pfc George H. Bowen

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to Private First Class George H. Bowen (ASN: 35643671), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving as a Medical Aidman with the 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, in action against enemy forces on 6 June 1944, in France. As the men in the initial assault on the coast of France waded through the waist-deep water, a number were wounded and were in grave danger of drowning. Private First Class Bowen, disregarding his own safety, stopped in his efforts to reach the shore, waded through the mined and fire-swept water to go to a wounded man who was drowning and dragged the man to shore. He then proceeded to the fire-swept areas to administer to the numerous casualties. During the attack men were wounded in an assault on an enemy machine gun nest high on the slopes of a cliff. Private First Class Bowen, to reach these men, crossed an uncharted mine field and moved through vicious enemy fire to within fifteen yards of the enemy's machine gun nest to render first aid to the stricken men. Private First Class Bowen's intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 1st Infantry Division, and the United States Army.
