Name:  Brohman, Howard E., Jr.
Date of birth:  Unknown
Nationality:  American
Rank: Private
Unit: 415th Infantry Regiment, 104th Infantry "Timberwolf" Division, U.S. Army
Action: For extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against the enemy. On 19 November 1944, Private Brohman volunteered to clear an enemy mine field in Germany after two of his comrades had been killed by exploding mines in attempting to reach an enemy pillbox. Heedless of the known dangers of his mission and disregarding his own personal safety, Private Brohman crawled forward in the face of enemy mortar, machine gun, and sniper fire to clear a path for an assault team. By his courageous act, Private Brohman personally located and deactivated twenty-five enemy mines and cut his way through dense wire entanglements. When he had successfully completed this tedious and dangerous task, the path was then cleared for an assault team to reduce an enemy pillbox, thereby permitting the advance of the attacking troops. The extraordinary heroism and courageous action of Private Brohman reflect great credit upon himself and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service.
Entered military service from Indiana.
