When his company had reached a point within 100 yards of its objective, to which it was
advancing under terrific machinegun fire, Pvt. Loman voluntarily and unaided made his way
forward after all others had taken shelter from the direct fire of an enemy machinegun. He
crawled to a flank position of the gun and, after killing or capturing the entire crew,
turned the machinegun on the retreating enemy.
