James Arthur Crow

1st Sergeant, U. S. Army

Silver Star

Headquarters, 43d Infantry Division, General Orders No. 764 (September 28, 1945)
The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Private First Class James A. Crow (ASN: 38550120), United States Army, for gallantry in action while serving with the 43d Infantry Division, in action against the enemy at Luzon, Philippine Islands, on 12 May 1945.
On that day one of Private Crow's comrades became panicky and started running wildly into the open, which resulted in his being grounded in perfect view of the enemy. Private Crow left his concealed position and ran to his wounded comrade through a hail of enemy fire and then proceeded to a safe position, where first aid was immediately administered, thus saving the wounded man from bleeding to death.
Through Private Crow's bravery and quick thinking he saved a man's life, bringing great credit to himself and the military service.
