Lt. (jg) Grant G. Andreasen, USNR, Homer, Idaho: As scout boat officer during the invasion of Normandy, he succeeded in the highly important mission of locating the beaches to be assaulted and went in close to the beach to act as a guide for the approaching wave of DD tanks. From an advanced position he fired rockets from his craft, at target objectives and rendered close fire support to the infantry assault waves. Later he rescued wounded personnel from burning landing craft under heavy enemy fire and carried them to safety.
