MAJOR DORLAND H. KONICHEK, (Army Serial Number K 100 029), Field Artillery, 12th Field Artillery Observation Battalion, United States Army, for distinguishing himself by meritorious service in connection with military operations against the enemy in France, Holland and Germany, from 1 July 1944 to 15 March 1945. As a Battalion Survey Officer, he planned and directed the accomplishment of more than 800 miles of survey. He organized and maintained a Survey Information Center which provided invaluable assistance to Artillery Battalions and enabled them to go into action swiftly without making extensive surveys to establish their positions. His ability to coordinate artillery needs and survey possibilities has been a most important factor in enabling his organization to accomplish its mission in a superior manner. His leadership, courage and devotion to duty reflect great credit on the military service of the United States.

Major General, United States Army
