Citation For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty in a raid. When his platoon was held up by wire and very heavy machine-gun fire, he collected some stray men, forced his way through the wire, and led his party with the greatest dash to success. Afterwards, his mopping-up work and clearing up of the enemy strong points was very effective. He set a fine example to all of courage and good leadership.
