During an attack he captured, with the aid of one runner, a machine gun and crew of five who were checking the advance.  At a later date, when his company’s flank was in a critical situation, owing to the retirement of other troops, he rallied the troops who were withdrawing, led them forward again under heavy fire, and restored the situation.  During ten days’ hard fighting he set a splendid example of courage, initiative, and resolution to the men
