Personal Citation for Special Meritorious Service

Bois le Comté, France

John F. Joyce served in France in the 26th Division, also known as the Yankee Division. He was severely injured and permanently deafened while carrying messages while under heavy enemy fire on 9 November 1918 and 10 November 1918 when an artillery shell landed close by and detonated. This occurred at Bois le Comté, north of Verdun.  Ironically, the armistice ending WWI was signed the following day, on 11 November 1918.

He was hospitalized for over six months, first due to his field injuries and later due to a case of spinal meningitis that he contracted during his hospital stay.
