S/Sgt. Robert L. Davin




S. Sgt Robert L. Davin, whose wife lives at 507 W. 27th street, has been commended for heroic service in action with the Fifth Army in Italy.  Sgt. Davin and several other men formed a platoon of litter bearers servicing the special service forces.  “Their bravery under fire was an inspiration to those under their control and their fine loyalty to duty and initiative in meeting new situations reflects the highest credit upon themselves, their unit and the medical detachment,” the citation said.
