By direction of the President, under the provisions of the Act of Congress approved 9 July 1918 (Bulletin 43, WD, 1918), a Slaver Star is awarded posthumously by the Commanding General, XI Corps, to the following named officer and enlisted men:

Technician Fifth Grade Lloyd S. Allen, 14818965, Medical Department, United States Army. For gallantry in action at Corregidor, Philippine Islands on 16 February 1945. Technician Allen, while performing the duties of an Aid man during the Corregidor Campaign , was  treating a seriously wounded soldier. Upon examination he determined the dire need for additional blood plasma for the wounded man. This much needed plasma was in an exposed position approximately 30 yards away in an area subjected to enemy fire; without hesitation and with complete disregard for his own personal safety, Technician e Allen dashed across the exposed area, secured the Plasma, and upon returning was mortally wounded. This display of bravery and devotion to duty by Technician Allen is in keeping with the highest tradition of the military service.  Next of kin: Mrs. Jenny Allen (mother), Route No. 1, Clopton, Alabama.

          Private George J. Mikel, 7032312, Infantry, United States Army. For gallantry in action on 19 February 1945 at Corregidor, Philippine Islands. Private Mikel, a platoon runner, voluntarily and without orders placed himself in an exposed position from which he directed mortar fire on a strongly held enemy position consisting of a concrete railroad cut. Private Mikel, although exposed to intense enemy fire, maintained his position, disregarded his personal safety and directed the mortar fire of his  platoon in such a manner that heavy casualties were inflicted on the enemy. His outstanding performance of duty, disregard of personal Safety and outstanding courage reflect great credit on him and the military service. Next of kin: Mrs. Rose Caya (sister), Lynxville, Wisconsin.

CAPTAIN EMMET R. SPICER, 0418702, Medical Corp, United States Army. For gallantry in action at Corregidor, Philippine Islands, on 16 February 1945. Upon landing by para chute,Captain Spicer immediately organized his aid station and then proceeded under heavy enemy machine gun fire toward Wheeler Battery, attempting to evacuate the many wounded personnel to the aid station. He was fully aware of the personal risk involved,
