Distinguished Service Cross Citation

Barricourt, France

Distinguished Service Cross

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to George W. Condit, Private First Class, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action while serving with Medical Detachment, 353d Infantry Regiment (Attached), 89th Division, A.E.F., near Barricourt, France, November 2 - 3, 1918. Undeterred by seeing another man killed in attempting to reach a wounded soldier, who was lying in the open 100 yards from a wood, Private Condit fearlessly exposed himself to fire from enemy snipers and machine guns, and succeeded in carrying the wounded soldier to shelter. Throughout the attack of November 2-3, Private Condit worked under severe machine-gun fire without cover, in dressing wounds after all other first-aid men had become casualties.
