The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Silver Star (Posthumously) to Lieutenant Commander [then Lieutenant] Manning Marius Kimmel (NSN: 0-74869), United States Navy, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in combat while serving aboard the U.S.S. DRUM (SS-228) during War Patrols of that Submarine in enemy-controlled waters during World War II. During three extensive war patrols in enemy waters and despite determined enemy opposition he courageously and skillfully performed his duties as Diving Officer and thus assisted materially in the sinking of an important amount of Japanese shipping.
