George Barnousky

1st Lieutenant, U. S. Army

Silver Star

Headquarters, 35th Infantry Division, General Orders No. 25 (August 25, 1944)
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to First Sergeant George Barnousky (ASN: 2642569), United States Army, for gallantry in action while serving with the 35th Infantry Division in France, on 1 August 1944.
When the first round of an enemy artillery barrage exploded in the midst of a church congregation of French civilians in a courtyard, killing twenty-one and wounding about thirty, Sergeant Barnousky, acting with disregard for his personal safety, ran to the group under heavy enemy artillery fire, and with cool and calm efficiency, controlled the frightened and hysterical survivors, directed the non-wounded to shelter, and evacuated the wounded to safety.
The courageous actions of Sergeant Barnousky, his coolness and efficiency in handling this situation, averted even greater casualties among the French civilians, and reflects the highest credit upon his character as a soldier and upon the military service.
