Birth: Jan. 23, 1922
Death: Mar. 28, 1945, Germany

Citation:
The President of the United States takes pride in presenting the Silver Star Medal (Posthumously) to Edwin F. March (36721995), Private First Class, U.S. Army, for gallantry in action against the enemy while serving with Company C, 7th Armored Infantry Battalion, 8th Armored Division, in Germany on 28 March 1945. While serving with a task force, Private March observed an accompanying tank hit by enemy artillery. He dashed across open ground under a heavy artillery barrage and aided in removing the wounded tank commander to safety. He then returned to the stricken vehicle and helped another wounded crew member to safety after which he returned to his squad to continue with its operation. During a subsequent enemy barrage, and while serving as security, Private March was fatally wounded. His courage and devotion beyond the call of duty reflect great credit on himself and the Armed Forces of the United States.
Headquarters, 8th Armored Division, General Orders No. 86 (August 10, 1945)
