On 2 April 1945, in Germany, Capt. Bossert and his troop were pinned down, as the enemy sent over a heavy barrage of mortar, artillery, and nebelwerfer fire. Unhesitatingly, and in the face of continuing enemy fire, he hurried forward of his troop front lines to a vantage point in observation of the enemy and directed artillery fire. His action resulted in saving the lives of his men and the evacuation of previously wounded personnel. His example was an inspiration to all. He entered military service from New York, New York.
