Brief, concrete description of his feat of arms or achievements:

“Serving as an engine man throughout the Mobile Post’s period of combat operations near Karolino-Bugaz; he handled the assignments unit command charged him with in an excellent manner. The Mobile Post was subjected to constant enemy artillery shelling. Owing to his excellent knowledge of the materiel he was entrusted with; comrade Pletenets in an efficient manner ensured the Mobile Post functioned continuously. Black Sea Fleet vessels always have a reference point available to them when they need it in order to set off on a combat mission. When enemy artillery severed the line of communication; comrade Pletenets, while under fire, repaired the cable. Through his efforts comrade Pletenets contributed to the operation’s successful outcome.
