Distinguished Service Cross 


The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Victor Andrykowski, Private, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Courmont and St. Martin, France, July 31 - August 3, 1918.

Throughout the battle to force passage of the Ourcq River and capture the heights beyond, Private Andrykowski, a stretcher bearer, worked day and night, evacuating wounded under heavy artillery and machine-gun fire. On August 3, under violent shell fire opposite Mont St. Martin, he made repeated trips between the firing line and the dressing station until he was killed by a shell.
