The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to Corporal Quincy Adams (ASN: 1896536), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with Company C, 320th Machine-Gun Battalion, 82d Division, A.E.F., near Xon Hill, France, 13 September 1918. Facing intense machine-gun fire, Corporal Adams went forward with another soldier for two hundred yards and rescued a wounded infantryman who had fallen when the patrol he was with had been forced back by hostile fire. Corporal Adams showed utter disregard for personal danger.
