"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 Second Lieutenant (Infantry) Paul A. Seiberling, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with 9th Machine-Gun Battalion, 3d Division, A.E.F., near Madeleine Farm, France, 16 October 1918. Lieutenant Seiberling, with a comrade, exposed himself to heavy enemy machine-gun fire in crawling forward in advance of our lines to rescue a wounded soldier. The wounded man was lying in a shell hole about 100 yards in advance of our lines. The rescuers were subject to enemy machine-gun fire from the time they left our lines until they returned. General Orders: War Department, General Orders No. 53 (1920)"

That is really cool. I used to have the dog tags and a few other odds and ends from a 42nd Div. DSC winner during WW1 but sold them. I kind of wish I still had them.
Thanks for sharing.
Paul

Actually  Lt. Paul Seiberling was awarded his DSC January 7, 1919...... they didn't hand the actual medal to him until 1920.  I cant get a Third Division link to open up on here, for some reason, that may be his as well.......  I did a search for seiberling, and your bracelet shows up, a 3rd division uniform shows up, and then 2 other links from a different man i think, from ohio.... cant get those to open up either.  Do you know what the uniform link is?

thanks,

ted
