Private First Class Raymond A Schrader, 20725082, Infantry, United State Army, for heroic service in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States in Ossenburg, Germany on 8 March 1945.  During an attack on the town of Ossenburg, Private Schrader, a scout, and a companion entered the village, took eighty-seven enemy soldiers prisoner, and discovered the exact locations of two tanks and two machine gun nests which were impeding the advance.  As a result of this accurate information, tank destroyers were able to deploy undetected to positions in the streets and knock out the enemy tanks, and machine gunners were able to eliminate the enemy machine gun nests.  Private Schrader's courageous initiative, keen tactical knowledge and daring actions reflect credit upon his character as a soldier.  Entered service from Kansas.
