    Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

    Master Sergeant K.K. Timofeev excelled in fighting for the hilltop near “Lasti-Koloniya.” While accomplishing his combat mission as a member of Armored Train #703 he was subjected to intense enemy artillery shelling, resulting in the locomotive being penetrated by shrapnel in four places. As a member of the locomotive crew Master Sergeant Timofeev, sensing the danger, shoved four wooden plugs in the holes, allowing the train to move out from under the artillery shelling. By his actions Master Sergeant Timofeev saved the locomotive and its personnel.

    For displayed resourcefulness and bravery he is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.
