Miguel Angel Ramirez

Private 1st Class, U. S. Army

Silver Star

Headquarters, 80th Infantry Division, General Orders No.
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 Miguel A. Ramirez (ASN: 38217506), United States Army, for gallantry in action while serving with the Medical Detachment, 80th Infantry Division in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States on 19 March 1945 in Germany.
On that date, during an assault near Wershweiler, Germany, Private Ramirez, an Aid Man, administered first aid to an enemy soldier and on questioning him learned the location of an enemy dugout. Alone and unarmed he entered the German position and convinced the occupants that resistance was futile. By capturing these men, Private Ramirez reduced by a marked degree the resistance encountered by his platoon.
The courage and devotion to duty displayed by Private Ramirez are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit and the United States Army.
