Citation for DSC:
"Staff Sergeant Isadore I. Jachman, Company B, 513th Parachute Infantry Regiment, on 4 January 1945 displayed extraordinary heroism in action at Flamierge, Belgium. His company was pinned down by enemy artillery, mortar and small arms fire, when two enemy tanks then moved up and began firing on the stricken defenders. Sergeant Jachman, seizing a bazooka from a fallen comrade, crossing open ground through the hail of enemy fire, stopped squarely in front of an enemy bullets now concentrated on him, firing his weapon alone, he damaged one of the tanks while the other quickly withdrew before his lone assault. By his heroic action, in which he made the supreme sacrifice under fatal enemy fire, Sergeant Jachman relieved the dangerous plight of his comrades and disrupted the entire enemy counterattack on the company positions."
