PFC Donald Boman
Pfc Donald Boman, better known to his Gladwin county friends as "Adrian," is now stationed overseas with U. S. forces. He is a brother of Leonard Boman, of Beaverton, and has always made his home in Beaverton. Gladwin County Record 4/26/1944

Pfc. Donald A. Boman, brother of Leonard Boman of Beaverton Route 2, recently was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service in combat in Italy. He served on the Fifth Army front in the 363rd Infantry Regiment of the 91st "Powder River" Division. The citation reads as follows: "Donald A. Boman (36404418) Private First Class, Infantry, United States Army. For meritorious service in combat from October 26, 1944 to April 29, 1945, in the Italian Campaign. When Pfc. Boman walked through heavy enemy artillery fire from the Regimental Observation Post to maintain contact with a neighboring infantry battalion. At Quereita, Italy, Pfc. Boman operated his radio and worked the observation post under heavy artillery and mortar fire. This resulted in securing vital information for the setting up of a Regimental defense. On another occasion, Pfc Boman was in the lead vehicle in the drive across the Po Valley. He remained with his radio at all times under direct enemy machine gun fire without regard for his personal safety. He has constantly maintained wire or radio communication for his squad, many times under heavy enemy fire. His courage, initiative and combat skill reflects the highest tradition of the Infantry and reflects great credit on himself and on the Armed Forces of the United States." Gladwin County Record 8/8/1945
