*JACHMAN, ISADORE S.
Rank and organization: Staff Sergeant, U.S.
Army, Company B, 513th Parachute Infantry Regiment. Place and date: Flamierge,
Belgium, 4 January 1945. Entered service at: Baltimore, Md. Birth: Berlin,
Germany. G.O. No: 25, 9 June 1950.
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity above and beyond the call of duty at Flamierge,
Belgium, on 4 January 1945, when his company was pinned down by enemy artillery, mortar,
and small arms fire, 2 hostile tanks attacked the unit, inflicting heavy. casualties.
S/Sgt. Jachman, seeing the desperate plight of his comrades, left his place of cover and
with total disregard for his own safety dashed across open ground through a hail of fire
and seizing a bazooka from a fallen comrade advanced on the tanks, which concentrated
their fire on him. Firing the weapon alone, he damaged one and forced both to retire.
S/Sgt. Jachman's heroic action, in which he suffered fatal wounds, disrupted the entire
enemy attack, reflecting the highest credit upon himself and the parachute infantry.
