Posthumous

 

 

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.
