Citation for the Distinguished Service Cross


The Distinguished Service Cross is presented to Victor H. Strahm, Major (Air Service), U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in action near Metz, France, September 13, 1918. Major Strahm displayed remarkable courage and skill in penetrating the enemy territory for a distance of 25 kilometers, flying at an altitude of less than 300 meters. His plane was subjected to intense fire from anti-aircraft guns in the region of Metz, and he was attacked by a superior number of German planes, one of which he destroyed. He completed his mission and returned with information of great military value.
