He was a First Lieutenant, in the U.S. Volunteer Signal Corps on February 5, 1899, at Paco Bridge, Philippine Islands, when he earned his Medal. His citation reads: Within a range of 250 yards of the enemy and in the face of a rapid fire climbed a telegraph pole at the east end of the bridge and in full view of the enemy coolly and carefully repaired a broken telegraph wire, thereby reestablishing telegraphic communication to the front. He was awarded his Medal on May 6, 1905.
