Citation for Bronze Star Medal (Posthumous)
Warrant Officer (Junior Grade) Andrew F. Hill, W2124538, Parachute Infantry, United States Army, for meritorious service in connection with operations against the enemy from 1 April 1944 to 6 June 1944, as Assistant Regimental Munitions Officer, Parachute Infantry. Through his initiative, intelligence, and extreme devotion to duty under the most trying conditions, Warrant Officer Hill has been an inspiration to everyone who has worked with him. In the face of many obstacles, he was successful in maintaining the ordnance of his regiment in a superior condition and in keeping the regimental basic load of ammunition prepared for immediate movement at all times. During the planning period preceding the invasion of Europe, Warrant Officer Hill worked unceasingly to ready the regimental supply and ordnance sections for combat. Its success in accomplishing its mission is now history, and to Warrant Officer Hill belongs as much credit as can be given to any one man. His final act was his life on D-Day in an assault in which it has been reported he personally accounted for seventeen enemy casualties. His conduct was in accordance with the highest standards of the military service.
