With the 38th Division on Quzon -- Hurling white phosphorus at the Japanese, only 25 yards away, a 38th Division platoon, including S/Sgt. Glenn E. Owens of Greensburg, Ind., repulsed an enemy attack in a fierce hand grenade battle in the mountains east of Manila.
The platoon had just dug in on a newly captured hill, when the Japs attempted to dislodge them by throwing fragmentation grenades from outside the perimeter.
The Americans, answering accurately with white phosphorus grenades, broke up the attack and successfully held the strategic hill.
Sgt. Owens is the son of Samuel E. Owens of Greensburg. His wife, the former Jessie Foley, resides in Schneider.
