Médaille Militaire
"Sergent pilot of the Army Air Service; pilot of the first order, courageous to the point of rashness, very close and very sure. Demonstrated his qualitites of courage and sang-froid on 26 March when, during a reconnaissance, his plane was very heavily fired upon and was hit several places by shrapnel, but he did not waver for an instant from the mission entrusted him. He particularly distinguished himself in the cooperation of his Escadrille during the operations of 5, 6 and 7 June." Médaille Militaire citation, 15 June 1915
