Warren, Guy G., Sr.

Headquarters, 1st Cavalry Division
General Orders No. 112 - September 29, 1950

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Master Sergeant [then Sergeant First Class] Guy G. Warren, Sr. (ASN: RA-6251332), United States Army, for gallantry in action as a member of Company E, 7th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, in action against the enemy on 30 July 1950, at Ichon, Korea. Company E made its initial contact with the enemy when the hostile forces launched a frontal assault supported by strong mortar, tank and machinegun fire uphill against the company positions. Heavy casualties were inflicted upon the third platoon. Master Sergeant Warren, acting as Platoon Leader, reorganized his men and placed them in positions where they could fire effectively upon the enemy. He carried ammunition to crew served weapons and encouraged his men to hold their line. Without regard for his own safety and under heavy small arms and machine gun fire he carried many wounded men to a safer place on the other side of the hill. Due largely to his courage and leadership the enemy attack was repulsed. Master Sergeant Warren's gallant actions reflect great credit upon himself and the military service.
