Red Star,3742295,Company Commander,103rd Rifle Regiment,Wounds 1980

This catch-up ORS is part of a small husband and wife group, courtesy of Paul Schmitt (thanks again :thumbsup ). I mostly worked out the translation myself with a dictionary, online translator, and some creativity. I think it's mostly accurate, but I put question marks next to spots I'm not sure of. If I figure out any improvements, I will edit.

Award Record Card:

1. Last Name: Burov
2. First Name and Patronymic:Grigorii Pavlovich
3. Rank: Lieutenant, retired
4. Sex: Male
5. Birthyear: 1918
6. Birthplace: village of Sosnovka, Baltaiskogo district (?), Saratovskaya Oblast
7. Party Membership: since 1943
8. Education: high school
9. Nationality: Russian
10. Service in the Red Army: 12.1940 - 11.1942
11. Place of Service and Duty Position at Time of Awarding: Company Commander, 103 Rifle Regiment, 34 Rifle Division
12. Place of Service and Duty Position at Current Time: pensioner
14. Awards: ORS #3,742,295 - 1980 issue

“Lieutenant (retired) Burov took part in operations of the 103 Rifle Regiment, 34 Rifle Division on the Stalingrad Front in the post of company commander. During an attack against enemy defenses on November 20, 1942, he was seriously wounded in the leg by fragments from a mine. This is confirmed by certificate #1723 of March 5, 1943 from hospital #1589. After treatment (?), he was declared a war invalid and was relieved from duty. After the war (?), he worked in railway transportation as a senior engineer of car-loading facilities. Now he is a pensioner. He is of good character (?). The question of is rewarding has been coordinated with local Soviet and Party bodies (?).”

Signed by General Major Beznoshenko, Military Commissiar for the Moldavian SSR, and then by Lieutenant General Kirillov.

Note that Burov's division and regiment are incorrect. While the numbers are right, they were actually guards units in the 28th army. I guess the details went missing after 38 years. It turns out Burov was wounded on day two of Operation Uranus, making this the first award citation in my collection related to Stalingrad. Please see map below.
