Frank Lillyman 101st Abn pathfinder

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to Captain (Infantry) Frank L. Lillyman (ASN: 0-368010), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving as Commanding Officer, 101st Pathfinder Company (Provisional), 502d Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, in action against enemy forces on 6 June 1944, in France. Riding in the leading plane of the Pathfinder Element, Captain Lillyman was one of the first Allied soldiers to make a parachute jump in the Airborne assault on the Normandy, France. Although under incessant enemy fire from the time he landed, Captain Lillyman assembled his Pathfinder Group, located the drop zones and directed the setting up and operation of homing devices for the guiding of the following waves of parachute troop planes to the correct drop zones. When attacked by the enemy forces Captain Lillyman led his men in the successful defense of this vital area and provided cover for the landing of the follow-up wave of parachute troops. Captain Lillyman's inspiring leadership, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, the 101st Airborne Division, and the United States Army.
