ANDRE, CHARLES H.
First Lieutenant, U.S. Army
Home: Detroit, Michigan
305th Machine-Gun Battalion, 77th Division, A.E.F.
Date of Action: October 14 - 15, 1918
General Orders 71, W.D., 1919

Citation:

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Charles H. Andre, First Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near St. Juvin, France, October 14 - 15, 1918.

Coming face to face with a large number of the enemy, while he was on a reconnaissance patrol, Lieutenant Andre opened fire with his revolver and continued to advance, demoralizing the enemy and proving instrumental in the capture of fifty prisoners. During a counterattack, he voluntarily went forward with a machine-gun in the face of heavy fire, and operated it to such effect as to break two waves of the advancing enemy.
