For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in command of a section on October 20th, 1918, east of Solesmes. Under heavy fire he pushed his section rapidly through strange country after dark. Later, he carried out a bold reconnaissance and selected other gun positions to which he guided the teams. Though suffering from gas poisoning throughout the day he remained with his section until it was withdrawn twenty-four hours later.
