Suggested edit: For Bio:
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 Captain (Infantry) Robert G. Woodside, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with 38th Infantry Regiment, 3d Division, A.E.F., at Les Franquette Farm, near Jaulgonne, France, 22 July 1918. Captain Woodside rallied the men of one platoon of his company who were falling back in disorder, reformed them under heavy enemy shell and machine-gun fire, and led them to the left front of the battalion sector and engaged the attacking enemy. His prompt action stopped an enveloping movement of the enemy which imperiled the position of the battalion.
