AWARDED CROSS FOR BRAVERY

Below is a clipping taken from one of the French papers sent to E. T. Buss by his son, Harold regarding soldiers who were awarded service crosses for acts of extraordinary bravery; Among the list is one of our Farnam boys. The article reads as follows:

"Private Leonard S. Banks, deceased, Co. G, 4th Inf. (A.S. No. 2213782) For extraordinary heroism in action in the Foret de Fere France, July 23, 1918. Badly wounded while on patrol, Private Banks returned to his company to get assistance for wounded comrades. He then volunteered and led the first-aid men through heavy gas and shell bombardment to the place where his wounded comrades were.
