Bronze Star: Hoebel, Henry L., Special Agent. While with the 70th CIC in Germany he was awarded the Bronze Star on 24 March 1945. The citation reads: "Special Agent Hoebel, accompanied by Special Agent James Olsen, established a secret informant system in the Saarbruecken, Germany, area. Through this system Hoebel was able to arrest an officer in the German Army who disclosed the location of a hostile ammunition dump. Hoebel and a comrade uncovered an elaborate underground SS cache of arms, ammunition, explosives nd sabotage equipment, camouflaged in a forest, 60 feet below the ground. further interrogation brought to light certain plans of the German underground movement which were largely frustrated by the discovery of the dump. the courageous efficiency of Special Agent Hoebel undoubtedly insured a higher degree of security for the important supply lines radiating from Saarbruecken."
