Private Frank M. Ford

Company D, 166th Infantry. For extraordinary heroism in action northeast of Chateau-Thierry, had located a hostile machine gun in a clump of trees 500 meters north of a chateau which their platoon was holding east of Fere-en-Tardenia, they secured the permission of their platoon commander to attempt to force the enemy to abandon this position, and advanced over open ground and in the face of fire. With their rifles they drove the enemy force from their gun, killing one and wounding another. Home address, R.
