The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress, July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Captain (Infantry) Harry B. Doremus, United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with Company "C", 114th Infantry Regiment, 29th Division, A.E.F., near Verdun, 25 October 1918. Having been ordered to establish liaison between his company and the support unit on the right, Captain Doremus led his detail to its objective under heavy machine-gun fire. The successful completion of his work saved a most serious situation, but in the performance of his duty he was killed.
