This listing is as complete as we are able to provide from numerous resources, however it is possible that a few recipients may not be listed.  You can verify if someone received the Distinguished Service Cross from this list, but absence of a name should NOT be construed to definitively negate a veteran's claim to this award. We DO believe that the list of recipients contained herein is 99.9% COMPLETE for ALL Wars and periods.
