Citation:

The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Charles H. Andre, First Lieutenant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near St. Juvin, France, October 14 – 15, 1918.

Coming face to face with a large number of the enemy, while he was on a reconnaissance patrol, Lieutenant Andre opened fire with his revolver and continued to advance, demoralizing the enemy and proving instrumental in the capture of fifty prisoners. During a counterattack, he voluntarily went forward with a machine-gun in the face of heavy fire, and operated it to such effect as to break two waves of the advancing enemy.
