This is what is written on my Dad's Citation:

Private SAUL J. Disler, 313367507. Medical Detachment, 63rd Armored Infantry Battalion, 11th Armored Division, United States Army. For gallantry in action near Remagne, Belgium, in connection with military operations against an armed enemy of the United States. On 30 December 1944, while Company B 63rd Armored Infantry Battalion, to which he was attached, was advancing toward Remagne, Belgium, Private Disler observed that two tanks to his right front had been hit by enemy shell fire and were burning. With utter disregard of personal safety and with unflinching courage, he immediately moved through intense artillery fire toward the blazing tanks. Upon reaching them, he evacuated two members of the tank crews, rendered first aid and assisted the wounded men to the aid station. The disregard of personal safety and loyal devotion to duty displayed by Private Disler was in accordance with the highest traditions of the United States Army. Private Disler entered the military service from Massachusetts.

Does anyone know who the men were that he evacuated from that tank? He is still around and telling WW2 stories. He doesn't see well enough to be on the computer but would love to speak to these men
