Brief description of personal deed or achievement:

Comrade Zhukov, while working on the "Studebaker" machine that has travelled 34000 kilometers without technical maintenance, has many times driven out of the enemy's artillery, rifle and aircraft fire, defying the dangers to his own life.

On the 23th January, near the village of Lavice of Poznan direction, he was the first to drive into the enemy airfield, has rapidly deployed the gun, and the guncrew managed to destroy 3 aircrafts. He has personally killed 5 enemy soldiers with his own fire-arm. Deserves the goverment's award of the Order of Patriotic War of 2nd degree.

Signed by commander of artillery division,
Captain Sokolov

By the order #08/11 on the 21st Guard's mechanized Yaroslavl's brigade in the name of Bogdan Khmelnitskiy from 7th February 1945, was awarded with order of "RED STAR".

Guys who know,

If this guy was driving a "Studebaker" and was artillery, is it safe to say he was in a group firing "katyusha" rockets?

I'd have to see the citation in the original, but most likely simple towed artillery.

Maybe he was driving the supply sergeant's truck, doing hot chow and mail runs back up from the BSA. :D
