World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Peck served as a Private, United States Army, Company A, 307th Infantry, 77th Division. He was awarded his medal for service In the Argonne Forest, France, on October 6, 1918. His citation reads-While engaged with 2 other soldiers on patrol duty, he and his comrades were subjected to the direct fire of an enemy machinegun, at which time both his companions were wounded. Returning to his company, he obtained another soldier to accompany him to assist in bringing in the wounded men. His assistant was killed in the exploit, but he continued on, twice returning safely bringing in both men, being under terrific machinegun fire during the entire Journey.  (bio by: K)
