WILLIS, Harold, Conducteur à la Section Sanitaire Automobile
Américaine N{o} 2: -

"A toujours fait preuve d'un courage et d'une hardiesse dignes
des plus grands éloges, notamment pendant l'attaque du 4 Juillet,
s'offrant pour aller chercher des blessés dans un endroit très
périlleux, et eut sa voiture criblée d'éclats d'obus."


WILLIS, Harold, Driver, of American Automobile Sanitary Section
No. 2: Has always given proof of a courage and fearlessness worthy
of the highest praise, notably during the assault of July 4, in
volunteering to go after the wounded in a very dangerous spot; his
car was riddled with fragments of shell.]


WOOLVERTON, William H., Conducteur à la Section Sanitaire
Automobile Américaine N{o} 1:

"Sous un bombardement incessant a continué à assurer le service
des évacuations sans la moindre hésitation. A un endroit
particulièrement exposé, au moment où les obus tombaient avec
violence, a arrêté sa voiture pour prendre des blessés qu'il a
aidé à charger avec le plus grand calme, donnant ainsi preuve de
courage et de sang-froid."

WOOLVERTON, William H., Driver, of American Automobile Sanitary
Section No. 1: Under an incessant bombardment continued to
superintend the removals without the slightest hesitation. At
one specially exposed spot, where shells were falling in swift
succession, he stopped his car to pick up some wounded men whom he
helped to put aboard, with the utmost coolness, thus demonstrating
his courage and self-possession.]

BARBER, WILLIAM, Driver in the Sanitary Service of an Infantry
Division: -

"In the course of recent operations has distinguished himself by his
courage and coolness in safeguarding night after night the removal of

be included in the foregoing list.


[Illustration: AA]

In the presence of mortal conflict, where the fulfilment of their labor
of friendship lies, the men whose names here follow have seen fortitude
greater even than the courage of the wounded. They have beheld the
strength of a people unified by sacrifice so complete that its
individuals are unconscious of personal heroism. They have worked side
by side with hundreds of thousands of men and women who in consummating
this sacrifice have yielded, without measure of cost, their ambition
and love, and challenged death - with dauntless resolution to save not
only their country, but the principles of democracy for the whole
world. France, invincible in her resistance, has issued no acclamation
of glory, has sought no sympathy for the costliness of the onslaught,
nor published denunciation of the enemy, but by intrepid manhood has
won the honor of all nations.

These Americans, in their service of conservation, have gained
immutable evidence of that spirit upon which the highest citizenship
and patriotism depend. Whatever bitterness chance may bring
into their futures, they at least can never lose faith in human
nature - remembering the standard under which these days of their youth
have been consecrated.
