Short Description of Excellent Military Action or Service: In August 1943 when the regiment was engaged in heavy fighting near the railway station of Merefa, Kharkov Region, the howitzer battery was firing point-blank into the enemy forces. Ten enemy tanks attacked the battery. Because of the attack, a battery of 76mm artillery pieces were ordered forward, and the howitzer battery was ordered to pull back. The enemy tanks were firing upon the battery emplacement. However, senior tractor mechanic Guards Senior Sergeant Volkoboi moved a tractor to the emplacement and pulled the battery to safety without regard for the heavy shelling from the enemy tanks. Comrade Volkoboi saved the howitzer battery equipment, which was being fired upon by the tanks advancing right up to the battery emplacement.
During the previous battles Senior Sergeant of the Guard always acted timely in any situation in order to move battery pieces, often risking his life under the enemy fire.

The tractor always functions properly. Repairs are done at the emplacement.

Guards Senior Sergeant Volkoboi deserves to be awarded the Glory Order, 3rd Class.
