The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Victor Andrykowski, Private, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Courmont and St. Martin, France, July 31 – August 3, 1918.

On August 3, under violent shell fire opposite Mont St. Martin, he made repeated trips between the firing line and the dressing station until he was killed by a shell.
