Throughout many long and hazardous combat missions against vital strategic targetds deep in enemy occupied territory, though confronted by heavy enemy opposition from highly aggressive fighters and intense and accurate anti-aircraft fire, the personnel listed below have consistently displayed outstanding courage, aggressiveness and intense devotion to duty throughout all engagements. With their aircraft frequently severely damaged by heavy enemy fire, these men have courageously remained at their stations, battling their way through to important enemy installations and supplies. Heedless of severe and adverse weather conditions encountered over rugged moutainous terrain and surmounting many other major obstacles that faced them during those hazardous missions , these men have gallantly engaged, fought and defeated the enemy with complete disregard for their own personal safety and against overshelming odds. The conspicuous and exttraordinary achievements throughout these many missions against the enemy have been of inestimable value to successful combat operations and have reflected great credit upon themselves and the Armed Forces of the United States of America."
