Short, concrete description of his combat feat or merits:


During the fighting with the German invaders for the village of Suragino on May 7, 1943, comrade Shokin displayed bravery, valor, and courage. Skillfully maneuvering his tank on the battlefield, during this battle he and his crew destroyed 1 enemy anti-tank gun, 2 wooden pillboxes, 3 dugouts, and 2 firing positions. Even though the approaches to the foremost front line were heavily mined, comrade Shokin skillfully led his tank through the mined sectors and was among the first to break through the enemy defenses. He took active part in evacuating two tanks, which had been disabled by mines, from the battlefield, despite the hammering enemy artillery and mortar fire.

He personally took part in evacuating comrade Krasnikov, a severely wounded radiotelegraph operator, from the battlefield, despite heavy enemy rifle, machine-gun, and mortar fire.

Conclusion: For killing enemy troops and destroying materiel, for evacuating disabled tanks, and for the bravery, valor, and courage he displayed in the process, he deserves the Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd Class.

I am surprised that this medal survived. Did they not wear their medals into combat?
