The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Army Distinguished Service Medal to Sidney A. Hagerling, Lieutenant Colonel (Signal Corps), U.S. Army, for exceptionally meritorious and distinguished services to the Government of the United States, in a duty of great responsibility during World War I. As Division Signal Officer, 28th Division, during the operations of his Division on the Vesle in September 1918, and later during the Meuse-Argonne offensive, Colonel Hagerling by his complete knowledge of his duties, his ceaseless energy, his initiative and his devotion to duty, regardless of extreme difficulties of terrain and heavy shell fire by the enemy in open-warfare situations, maintained the telephone net of the Division intact at all times, thereby enabling the Division Commander to communicate with all elements of the Division, even the front line, and assisting very materially in the control and conduct of the Division and in bringing its operations to a very successful conclusion. War Department, General Orders No. 38 (1922)
