Comments/Citation
 A memorable soldier was T. Sgt. Argil H. Warner, who was a platoon sergeant and probably the oldest man in our company. He was about 34 years old and was affectionately called "Pop" Warner by his boys who were about half his age. His younger brother, who was in the First Infantry Division, had urged him to transfer out of the rifle company and get an assignment in a less dangerous unit. Because of his age he could have gotten another assignment but he replied that he would not leave his boys. It happened in the vicinity of Schwangerbach, France that he was killed in action by a direct artillery hit on his foxhole. He wanted to do his duty as a soldier even if it cost him his life. The Army does not give medals for devotion to duty and to fellow soldiers above and beyond the call of duty.
