Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment
Comrade Radavskii has been in the 14 Army since the beginning of the war. From the position of Chief of the Hygienic-Epidemiological Detachment, he has advanced to the position of Army Epidemiologist. Due to his Comrade Radavskii’s energetic work as the Chief of the Hygienic-Epidemiological Detachment and Army Epidemiologist during the active defense period, infectious disease incidents fell sharply among the Army’s subordinate units. He precisely and operationally eliminated incidents of typhus, resulting in the eradication of typhus.
During our forces’ offensive operations, the hygienic-epidemiological medical intelligence was accurately conducted. Sanitary prophylactic measures were applied under difficult conditions caused by the lack of roads, hygienic-disinfecting equipment was well-positioned, and there were no medical infections among the forces. Comrade Radavskii is deserving of the Order of the Red Star.
Signed Chief of the 14 Army Health Administration, Medical Services Colonel Verlikii on 1 November 1944.

Re: Red Star,Belorussian Front?,986212

Nice medical award. Treating typhus probably put more soldiers back in the business of killing Hilterites than most activities did.

"Liberation of Western Belarus in 1939" - would this be the annexation of eastern Poland, the partner operation to the German invasion of western Poland?
