The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Warren A. Ransom, Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Missy- aux-Bois, Chaudon, France, July 18, 1918. Lieutenant Ransom accompanied Major John A. Crane, Field Artillery, on a reconnaissance of the enemy's position under intense enemy rifle, machine-gun, and artillery fire; the mission accomplished, Major Crane was seriously wounded while some distance in rear of Lieutenant Ransom and in plain view of the enemy gunners. Lieutenant Ransom returned at once to Major Crane, carried him to a place of comparative shelter, and, despite the heavy enemy fire, sought and found a medical officer, whom he led to the wounded officer. Again leaving shelter he secured a litter and with the assistance of two French soldiers carried the wounded officer to a place of safety.
