Bronze Star Medal Citation

Private First Class Edward O. Hall, 39384618, Infantry, United States Army, for heroic service in connection with military operations against an enemy of the United States in the vicinity of * * *, Normandy, France, 17 - 19 July 1944. Private Hall, serving as lineman in a wire crew, displaying tenacity and courage, assisted his section of the communications platoon of the battalion in maintaining the battalion communications system. Working under almost constant enemy observation, over fields containing mines and booby traps and subjected to enemy fire of all types, Private Hall's efforts were materially responsible for the almost continuous maintenance of the intra-battalion communications system, which was a vital factor in the continued success of the operation leading to the capture of * * *. Entered military service from Oregon.
