Citation:

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Albert C. Arnold, First Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near St. Juvin, France, October 10 & 11, 1918.

On the night of October 10-11, Lieutenant Arnold was painfully wounded while reconnoitering the enemy's positions, but continued with his mission after receiving first aid from an accompanying soldier.

Early in the morning of October 11, with the assistance of one soldier, he silenced a machine gun which was enfilading our line. He was again wounded while accomplishing this mission, but continued his efforts until another machine gun had been put out of action through his personal direction. He remained on duty with his men until he became so weak from loss of blood and exposure to gas that he collapsed and was carried from the field.
