U.S. Army WWI

In advance of an assaulting line, Sgt O'Neill attacked a detachment of about 25 enemy soldiers in the ensuing hand-to-hand encounter. He sustained pistol wounds as the advance continued, he received additional wounds but remained in active command of his squad being again wounded. Sgt. O'Neill was forced by loss of blood to be evacuated but insisted first on being taken to his battalion commander to report on the position of his men as well as that of the enemy. (Base) Above and Beyond the Call of Duty.
