    Short description of personal combat feat or service

    Guards Senior Sergeant Rodichev has repeatedly participated in night and day combat raids, delivering “tongues”* and determining the quantity of Germans facing our forces.

    On 21st July, 1943 during a nighttime raid near B. Armyanskaya while in a regimental reconnaissance raid, Comrade Rodichev displayed boldness and valor while conducting the operation. When the Germans detected the reconnaissance group, they unleashed a firestorm and tried to surround it, but Comrade Rodichev boldly led his soldiers forward, destroying Germans and personally killing six. During this Comrade Rodichev carried off a wounded soldier, not abandoning him in enemy occupied territory.

    The reconnaissance group also seized one prisoner.

    He is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.

    Signed Commander, 116th Guards Rifle Regiment, Guards Major Shapiro on 25th July, 1943

    Awarded the Order of the Red Star by Order 021/N of the 40th Guards Red Banner Rifle Division dated 6th August, 1943. Verified by Chief of the Division 4 Section, Guards Major Strakhov

    (*In this context, I believe "tongues" means prisoners for interrogation.)
