In last week's Shelby News we made an error in running two items together. We stated that Milford Tuttle, Sr., Vincent Manno, Ernest Royce and Ruth Stinnett spent Christmas with the Warner family at Hessville. The three men, all soldiers home on furlough, returned to camp and did not go to Hessville as we erroneously stated.
This Lowell Tribune article was found in the March 1, 1945, issue (page 2, column 2):
S/Sgt. Vincent Manno, son of the Frank Mannos, Shelby, has been awarded a Bronze Star for meritorious achievement in connection with military operations against the enemy in France between Sept. 20 and 24, 1944.
Sgt. Manno was a member of a forward observer team that accompanied leading elements of a battalion of the 5th infantry division in its attack across the flooded Moselle river south of Metz. The attack progressed successfully until the village of Pournay-la-Chitine was reached. There it was momentarily stopped by a persistent barrage of artillery, mortar, machine gun and rifle fire from German emplacements. Comprehending the situation at once, Sgt. Manno, scorning a position of cover, closely observed enemy movements and adjusted his artillery with such accuracy that it was possible to repel German counter attacks and nullify the fire of many of their weapons.
Sgt. Manno's skill and brave devotion to duty were instrumental in saving the lives of many of his fellow soldiers and brought credit to himself and his unit.
