Date of Action: September 26 - 30, 1918
The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Frederick A. Muhlenberg, Captain, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Nantillois, France, September 26 - 30, 1918. As regimental adjutant Captain Muhlenberg displayed the utmost disregard for personal danger in assisting his regimental commander in maintaining liaison with the front lines. After being painfully wounded and gassed by a bursting gas shell, this officer refused to be evacuated, but remained on duty, carrying orders to the front line and bringing back valuable information, until he was ordered to the rear.
