JOHN FINNIGAN,
U.S. Army, a ","",ber of Hql. Blry., 151h AAA AW
Bn.,
attached to Co.C, 31st Infantry, distinguished himself by gallantry in action near Naedang, Korea. On 2 No.vember 1951, while attempting to maneuver his holltrock to within close proximity of a combatpatrol which was engaged in a firefight with the enemy when a call for litters reached him.Immediately, he secured the litters and mode his wayan foot through a hail of enemy small
arms, automatic weapons, and mortar fire to reach the medical aidmen.
leaving
the litters withthe aidmen, he began maneuvering so as to draw the enemy fire from the wounded men's area.
With complete disregard for his porsonal safety, he continuously exposed himself to the concen.troted enemy fire and engaged the hostile force in a heavy firefight and succeeded in lilting theenemy's fire from the casualties. The quick thinking and intrepid actions of Sgt. Finniganenabled the medical aidmen to successfully evacuate 15 men from the dangerously exposedcreo. The gallantry displayed reflects great credit on himself and the military service. x x x
