World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served in the United States Army during World War I as a Sergeant in the Headquarters Company of the 116th Infantry, 29th Division. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action at Bois-de-Consenvoye, France on October 8, 1918. His citation reads "With the remark "I will get them", Sgt. Gregory seized a rifle and a trench mortar shell, which he used as a hand grenade, left his detachment of the trench-mortar platoon, and advancing ahead of the infantry, captured a machine gun and three of the enemy. Advancing still farther from the machine-gun nest, he captured a 7.5 centimeter mountain howitzer and, entering a dugout in the immediate vicinity, singlehandeldly captured 19 of the enemy."
