Citation of Units
1st Platoon, Company I,
424th Infantry
3d Platoon, Company I,
424th Infantry

These platoons, completely cut off from the remainder of their battalion, made an extremely difficult march during the night of 21-22 February. Despite adverse weather conditions, continual presence of the enemy, and without food, they completed a forced cross-country march.  During this period, they captured several enemy troops and material including an outpost radio which was immediately silenced.  The action of these platoons was marked by gallantry, fearlessness, and devotion to duty.
