Distinguished Service Cross Recipients

from Wisconsin

The following pages contain the names of all Distinguished Service Cross Recipients from Wisconsin that I have found. I have listed Recipients who were born in Wisconsin or lived in Wisconsin when they entered service.

 

The Distinguished Service Cross is our Nationís second highest decoration for heroism, second only to the Medal of Honor. The DSC was established by Act of Congress 9 July 1918 (amended by act of 25 July 1963). The DSC is awarded to a person who, while serving in any capacity with the Army, distinguished himself or herself by extraordinary heroism not justifying the award of a Medal of Honor; while engaged in an action against an enemy of the United States; while engaged in military operations involving conflict with an opposing or foreign force; or while serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing Armed Force in which the United States is not a belligerent party. The act or acts of heroism must have been so notable and have involved risk of life so extraordinary as to set the individual apart from their comrades. The DSC is equivelant to the Navy Cross and the Air Force Cross.
