Citation: When his company had reached a point
within 100 yards of its objective, to which it was advancing under terrific
machinegun fire, Pvt. Loman voluntarily and unaided made his way forward
after all others had taken shelter from the direct fire of an enemy machinegun.
He crawled to a flank position of the gun and, after killing or capturing
the entire crew, turned the machinegun on the retreating enemy.
