    Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

    Comrade Aristeev is a bold and decisive commander. In fighting for Hill 177.9 our small unit attacked an enemy trench however when only ten meters remained until the trench two heavy machineguns opened up from the German side causing our infantry to go to ground.

    Quickly sending several correctly-sighted mortar rounds, Comrade Aristeev destroyed the two heavy machineguns and eight enemy soldiers.

    In other mortar firing Comrade Aristeev destroyed an enemy mortar battery.

    He is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.

    Signed Commander, 32nd Rifle Regiment, Guards Major Matukhin on 13th December, 1943

    Endorsed Commander, 19th Rifle Division, Colonel Lazarev on 15th December, 1943
