Lieutenant) Dawson voluntarily offered
his services to accompany elements of
the Division Reconnaissance Patrol on
the latter's first foot patrol in deep snow.
During the entire twenty-one hours, his
skill and knowledge of snow patrolling
guided the platoon through the dangerous
and hazardous routes. Acting as lead
scout, First Lieutenant Dawson and his
second scout succeeded in surprising an
enemy road block, killing one of the en-
emy and taking several prisoners. The
patrol continued and, through his skill,
flushed several more of the enemy and
forced the withdrawal of the numerically
superior enemy force under intense fire.
First Lieutenant Dawson's aggressive ac-
tion, courage and skill instilled great con-
fidence in the men and enabled the pla-
toon to successfully accomplish its mis-
sion." AnM**- { 1/ y J
