Co."C" 5th Machine Gun Battalion
A.E.F. France, April 15, 1918

From: The Commanding Officer Co."C" 5th M.G. Bn.
To : The Commanding Officer 9th Infantry.
       (Thru military channels)
Subject: Recommendations for bravery.

1. I recommend that the following men of Co. "C" 5th Machine Gun Battalion, attached to 3d Battalion 9th Infantry, be mentioned for bravery in the action of April 13-14, 1918.
2. Sgt. Gegere, 107602, Paul, Co. "C" 5th Machine Gun Battalion, in a machine gun emplacement when the enemy came up from the rear demanding that he surrender. Instead of complying, the Sergeant fired his pistol killing two of them, and although wounded by them still refused to surrender his machine gun or himself, but succeeded in fighting them off. It was due to his efforts solely that this machine gun was not captured.
3. Pvt. Chugay, 107666, Timofey, and Pvt. 1st class Perun, 107717, Frank, Co. "C" 5th Machine Gun Battalion, although the rest of their squad was captured, mounted their machine gun on the parapet and after fighting off large numbers of the enemy with grenades, remained with their piece during the entire attack.
4. Privates Kantrewitz, 107695, Louis, and Pistikoudis, 107720, Theodore, although captured by the enemy and having their pistols and belts taken away from them, succeeded in getting away from their captors by taking the guns from two of them, and killing them by clubbing them, thereby showing great courage in the face of greatly superior numbers of the enemy.
