Citation:

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Mike Boiko, Sergeant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Marcheville, France, September 26, 1918.

When the advance of his company was temporarily halted by machine-gun fire from an enemy nest, Sergeant Boiko volunteered to flank the nest and put the guns out of action. Although under intense fire, Sergeant Boiko, utterly disregarding his own personal danger, crawled out from the lines and worked his way to a favorable position where enfilade fire could be delivered and with his pistol silenced the guns, capturing them and a portion of the enemy gun crews, thus enabling his company to make a further advance.
