Citation for BRONZE STAR

Charles Enwall, 18001355, Technical Sergeant, 319th Fighter Squadron, 325th Fighter Group. For meritorious service in support of military operations against the enemy in the Mediterranean Theater of Operations. From 28 January 1943 to 1 February 1945, Technical Sergeant Enwall was the N.C.O. in charge of all airplane parts and equipment of his squadron. During this period, which involved many moves in Africa and Italy, as well as complete change over in parts to two (2) different types of fighter aircraft, his qualities of professional skill, leadership, resourcefulness and devotion to duty under the most difficult field conditions were vital factors in the squadron's superlative maintenance record. Technical Sergeant Enwall's four (4) years of service have been consistent with the highest traditions of the ground forces of the Air Corps. His outstanding record reflects great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Residence at time of enlistment: Denver, Colorado.

The narrative accompanying the award cites in particular the manner in which he secured vital parts for the squadron's aircraft during the early stages of of preparation for entering combat in the North African campaign Sergeant Enwall made daily trips to all Allied bases near his camp to draw what supplies he could, and, using his wide professional knowledge, sought out salvage dumps, wrecked planes, and deposits of every description in the vicinity of his continuous search for required parts. Very frequently he filled urgent needs for supplies not on hand at the base through improving equipment from wreckage and dumps.

Sgt. Enwall enlisted in the Army Air Force Jan 6, 1941. He was in the AAF "Checkertail" P-47 Thunderbolt fighter group. He was honored for his maintenance of a well stocked Technical Supply section throughout his fighter group's two transitions in types of aircraft * * * transitions that required complete turnover of plane parts.

From the date his squadron began to fly the P-51 Mustang, no plane had been out of operation for more than twenty-four (24) hours due to lack of parts.

He was also authorized to wear the American Defense Ribbon, The Good Conduct Ribbon, European-African-Middle East Campaign Ribbon with five campaign stars, and the Distinguished Unit Badge with one cluster.

He was a graduate of Ovid High School, Ovid, Sedgwick County, Colorado.

Chuck had 10 brothers and sisters: Hazel Faye, Osa Mae, Franklin Leroy, Ivan Edward, Louis Emerson, Edson Woodrow, Lester Lloyd, Gilbert Dale, Betty Marie, and, Shirley Lee.
