CITATION FOR DISTINGUISHED SERVICE CROSS:

"1st Lieut. Albert E. Angier (deceased) 308th Infantry— on September 14th, 1918, in the attack near Revillon when his Battalion advanced, this Officer, in command of a platoon of Company M, 308th Infantry, continued to lead his men though wounded. By his own personal courage and example, he urged them forward through enemy wire to their objective. Even when mortally wounded, he continued to direct the consolidation of his platoon's position, refusing medical attention in favor of others who had a better chance to live than himself."

(Quoted from "On the Field of Honor," ed. Paul B. Elliott, Boston, 1920.)

 

[The Angier family was very active in the Waban community before the War, and of course it seemed appropriate to name the new elementary school after their son, Albert. — J.M.]
