    Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

    While working as a liaison officer in a precise and exceptionally conscientious manner he accomplished the Command’s missions under difficult conditions pursuing the enemy for 40 kilometers. He exhibited exceptionally mobility, initiative, and resourcefulness in the timely delivery of combat documents and relaying the situation in the units.

    During the pursuit of the enemy he quickly and timely appeared in the regiments’ HQs, defined the situation and marked it out on maps thus informing the HQ in a timely manner in the course of the unfolding situation.

    He maintained ties in an uninterrupted manner with the Division’s attacking units, accurately informing the Command in a timely manner of the developing situation, thus enabling the accomplishment of the assigned mission.

    I am submitting him for the Order of the Red Star.

    Signed Commander, 142nd Rifle Division, Colonel Sonnikov on (?) June, 1944

    Either way is fine. You can post it now and add to it once the research & translation comes back.
