This was awarded on 19 April 1919 and is signed by John J. Pershing, Commander-in-Chief. It measures 10 1/4" x 14" and is printed on one side. It is a certificate. 2. A signed letter from E. M.

Chase, are cited for the following: "For courageous sacrifice in submitting to experiments to determine the manner of transmission of Trench Fever and contracting the same, at St. Pol, Pas de Calais, France, in the month of February, 19l8; thereby performing an eminent service to the Allied cause and to humanity."
