Awarded the Bronze Star Medal

Technician Fourth Grade SAMUEL L CATANZARO,  Medical Detachment, 787th Field Artillery Battalion, United States Army. For heroic achievement in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States in GERMANY. On 13 April 1945, during action near the Elbe River, GERMANY, Technician Fourth Grade CATANZARO fearlessly exposed himself to intense hostile fire and administered first aid to a comrade who had been seriously wounded in an enemy ambush. Although the enemy persisted in their attack he courageously remained with the wounded man and through his skillful and unselfish actions saved his life. Technician Fourth Grade CATANZARO’S heroic achievement and unflinching devotion to duty reflect great credit for himself and the military service.
