The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Stephen C. Markoe, Second Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Seicheprey, France, March 1, 1918. While occupying a combat position in the Bois Carre with his platoon of Company I, 18th Infantry, the position was smothered under an intense bombardment of enemy artillery and machine-gun fire. Following a rolling barrage, Lieutenant Markoe was attacked by a vastly superior force of enemy storm troops. The company commander having been killed, Lieutenant Markoe led the counterattack against the raiding forces and killed in close combat the leader of the raiding party. The action of Lieutenant Markoe stopped the enemy in this part of the sector and was the principal factor which led to the repulse of the enemy raid. Despite the fact that he had been severely wounded early in the action, he refused to relinquish command until the enemy was decisively ejected with great loss from the position. Lieutenant Markoe displayed exceptional leadership and extraordinary heroism in this action.

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Vance Mershon, Captain, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Exermont, France, October 4 - 11, 1918. After the battalion commander and all the senior officers had been killed or wounded, Captain Mershon (then a first lieutenant) took command of the battalion and led it successfully to its objective, remaining with it after being painfully wounded, until properly relieved and the new commanding officer thoroughly acquainted with the situation. He then had his wound dressed and returned to his company, actively supervising the laying of barrages by indirect fire. On the third day he was ordered to the rear, there had his wounds dressed, again returning to his company, remaining with it until it was relieved and reorganized. His courage, self-sacrifice, and utter disregard for his own personal danger was a material inspiration to his men while under the terrific bombardment by enemy artillery.
