BUNCH, HENRY E.
Captain (Medical Corps), U.S. Army
168th Infantry Regiment, 42d Division, A.E.F.
Date of Action: October 13 - 16, 1918
Citation:
The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Henry E. Bunch, Captain (Medical Corps), U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near the Bois-de-Chatillon, France, October 13 - 16, 1918. During the advance of his regiment in the Verdun sector he established aid stations at points as far advanced as possible and supervised them throughout the combat, working continuously, and fearlessly without food or rest. On October 14 this officer went out in advance of the front line to reconnoiter a site for an aid station and an ambulance route. Seeing a wounded officer lying about 300 meters from the enemy's line, he went to his rescue and carried him through terrific machine-gun and rifle fire to a shell hole, where he administered aid, in entire disregard of his own safety.
