Distinguished Service Cross

The President of the United States of America, authorized by Act of Congress July 9, 1918, takes pride in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross (Posthumously) to Private First Class Theodore Mister (ASN: 13103725), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy while serving with the 38th Infantry Regiment, 2d Infantry Division, in action against enemy forces on 13 June 1944. On that date, near Min-des-Rondelles, France, an attacking company had moved forward until two of its platoons were stopped in a dry stream bed by severe machine gun fire. Hostile mortars started to adjust their fire on the halted platoons. Sensing the danger of the situation and realizing the mortar fire would soon be falling on the platoons, Private Mister, a company runner, moved among the men, urging them to move out and continue their advance. Shouting „Come on, follow me,“ Private Mister charged up an embankment and dashed straight toward the enemy. Inspired and given courage by the dynamic actions of Private Mister, the two platoons surged forward in response to his gallant example. Though Private Mister never reached the objective, his life was not given in vain. The men he led fought on and successfully accomplished their mission. The extraordinary heroism and courageous actions of Private Mister reflect great credit upon himself and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service.
