GENERAL ORDERS # 338 - 15 August 1953

Second Lieutenant HANS G. Olsen, 01925827, Infantry, Company "E", 65th Infantry
Regiment, 3d Infantry Division, United States Army. On the night of 14 June 1953,
Company "E" made a raid on Hill "412" in the vicinity of Sagimak, Korea. Lieutenant
OLSEN was platoon leader of the support element as the company made their way through
the heavy enemy artillery towards their objective. When the support element reached
its position, he directed a base of fire on the hill despite heavy enemy shelling
consentrated on his area. Although wounded by the enemy fire, he remained in place,
directing protective fire. After three assaults on the enemy outpost, the company
was ordered to return to friendly lines. After returning to the main line of
resistance, Lieutenant OLSEN discovered several men were still missing. He imme-
diately organized a patrol to search the battle area for the missing men. Under
extremely dangerous conditions, he searched the entire area and evacuated several
wounded men. Only after assured that no one remained on the hill did he allow
himself to be given first aid for his wounds. Lieutenant OLSEN'S outstanding gal-
lantry and devotion to duty reflect great credit upon himself and the military ser-
vice. Entered the Federal Service from Minnesota.
