Grosrenor P. Cather, Second Lieutenant, 26th Infantry.

For extraordinary heroism in action near Cantigny, France, May 27, 1918.

During a strong enemy attack he mounted the parapet of his trench and, although exposed to withering machine-gun fire, he so skillfully directed the fire of his automatic rifle that the attack was repulsed.

In this action he fell mortally wounded.
