Distinguished Service Cross

Awarded for actions during the World War I

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Corporal Fred C. Miller, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with Company H, 18th Infantry Regiment, 1st Division, A.E.F., near Exermont, France, 4 and 5 October 1918.

On 4 October Corporal Miller, with a small group from his platoon, advanced through heavy fire and captured an enemy machine-gun nest with its crew of six men. The following day he advanced in front of our lines through heavy fire and assisted several wounded comrades to safety. Corporal Miller was killed later during an engagement in the Argonne.
