PFC Theodore J. Price, Troop B, 116th Squadron

Silver Star

 

On 10 April 1945, in Germany, while on a mission of reconnaissance, elements of Troop B were held up by small arms fire. In the face of danger to himself and increased fire, he drove a machine gun bantam right into the line of fire. The gunner in the car was thus able to cover the withdrawal of the dismounted patrol and the reorganization of the platoon for further action. His action was a source of inspiration to all and increased the morale of all personnel. He entered military service from High Point, North Carolina.
