Sgt. Alfred Nietzel is being recognized for his valorous actions on Nov. 18, 1944, in Germany. When an enemy assault threatened to overrun his unit’s position, Nietzel selflessly covered for the retreating members of his squad, expending all his ammunition and holding his post until he was killed by an enemy hand grenade.
