    Seaman 1st Class Vasily Fedorovich Lutsyuk

    His Red Star 553516

    Comrade Lutsiuk has been fighting the German invaders since the very first days of the Patriotic War. To August 1942, Comrade Lutsiuk served at the __ Torpedo Boat Brigade as the radio operator for Torpedo Boat 73. Here he participated in the defense of Odessa, escorting ships between Odessa and Sebastopol and hunting for enemy submarines. Throughout all operations, Comrade Lutsiuk braved enemy aerial attacks to accomplish his mission. He remained on duty, and maintained radio communication with both the base and other ships.

    From the very beginning of the defense of Sebastopol, Comrade Lutsiuk participated in its heroic defense until the very last day; until all of the remaining troops had left the city. Comrade Lutsiuk’s torpedo boat participated in convoy escort operations, transporting foodstuffs to the besieged city, delivering smoke screens under heavy enemy shelling and thus providing a cover for the convoy ships to reach the berths. Comrade Lutsiuk managed to maintain radio communication with stations on land. He also took part in surveillance to track enemy torpedo boats and submarines in the area of operations of our ships. He immediately notified the command of the approaching enemy and provided reliable radio communication. Comrade Lutsiuk participates in detecting mines, dropped by enemy aircraft over the navigation channels.

    Following the retreat from Sebastopol, Comrade Lutsiuk and his torpedo boat were assigned to the 2nd Torpedo Boat Brigade. Here, he participated in combat operations in Torpedo Boat 96. As the radio operator for Torpedo Boat 96, Comrade Lutsiuk participated in over ten combat duels with German torpedo boats that were trying to destroy our landing on Malaya Zemlya.

    He participated in artillery fire assaults in the port of Anapa, ___, Ozereika and in numerous torpedo boat support operations while also serving as a mine layer. In all of these combat operations Comrade Lutsiuk displayed skill, knowledge and courage.

    During the Novorossiysk offensive operation, Comrade Lutsiuk served at the base as radio operator, providing for reliable communication between Headquarters, Torpedo Boat Brigade and the operating torpedo boats. During the liberation of the Tamanskii Peninsula, Comrade Lutsiuk landed at the newly-liberated Utrish Cape in order to provide communications. He performed this task excellently.

    Returning to his torpedo boat, Comrade Lutsiuk participated in torpedo boat operations, displaying courage and bravery, providing reliable communications for his torpedo boat commander.
    And Ushankov 123383

    Comrade Lutsiuk has been a participant in the Patriotic War since June 1941. Serving as a radio operator in Torpedo Boat 73, he was provided escort for ships along the Sebastopol-Odessa route as well as tracked magnetic mines dropped by German aircraft over the Sebastopol Bay navigation channel. He was a participant in the heroic defense of Sevastopol from the start of the fight to its very last days.

    Reassigned to the 2nd Torpedo Boat Brigade in the winter of 1942-43, he participated in patrol operations in Tsemesskaya Bay with Torpedo Boat 96. With an Artillery Boat, he participated in shelling the military airfield at Anapa and destroyed 10 Me-110 aircraft. He further shelled Blagoveshenskaya where two artillery ammunition depots were destroyed, and Yuzhnaya Ozereika, where his artillery fire smashed an enemy artillery battery and killed up to a battalion of enemy infantry.

    Later, Comrade Lutsiuk landed at the newly-liberated Utrish cape in order to establish communications between Headquarters, Torpedo Boat Brigade and the torpedo boats operating in the Kerch Strait.

    In the amphibious assault operations to capture the towns of Sulina and Constanta, he landed with the first marine assault unit as the operational radio operator.

    Throughout all operations, Comrade Lutsiuk acted with bravery and courage.

    Red Navy Senior Sailor Lutsiuk deserves to be awarded the Nakhimov Medal for his bravery and courage displayed in the fight against the German invaders. [Note: it was converted to Ushakov medal when it went up the chain of command]

    OK, one more today. Do be sure to read the recommendation.

    Private Aleksei Yakovlevich Verozubov, 206nd Independent Artillery-Machinegun Battalion, 52nd Army; Line Supervisor

    OPW 2:

    Guards Private Aleksei Yakovlevich Verozubob was a participant of the Patriotic War from 20.8.42 through 7.12.45 on the Volkhov Front as part of the 206 Independent Machinegun-Artillery Battalion, 53 Army as a Line Manager-Communications Soldier.

    While defending the village of Gruzin (Kirishskii Region, Leningrad Oblast) he was seriously wounded by a bullet in the left buttocks. As a result of his wound, his testicles were amputated on the basis of a report from Evacuation Hospital #1148 dated 13.3.43.

    At the present he works as the Chief of Military Records in Angren and his work receives positive reviews.

    I am recommending Guards Private Aleksei Yakovlevich Verozubov for the Order of the Patriotic War II Class for his active participation in the Patriotic War and subsequent wounding.

    Hi Ed, I did indeed read the citation. I don't think any award could compensate for that kind of loss!

    Cheers, Ade.
