Headquarters, XI Corps
General Orders No. 13
12 March, 1945
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.
