About Archie A Peck

The President of the United States of America, in the name of Congress, takes pleasure in presenting the Medal of Honor to Private Archie A. Peck (ASN: 1704658), United States Army, for extraordinary heroism on 6 October 1918, while serving with Company A, 307th Infantry, 77th Division, in action at Argonne Forest, France. While engaged with two other soldiers on patrol duty, Private Peck and his comrades were subjected to the direct fire of an enemy machinegun, at which time both his companions were wounded. Returning to his company, he obtained another soldier to accompany him to assist in bringing in the wounded men. His assistant was killed in the exploit, but he continued on, twice returning safely bringing in both men, being under terrific machinegun fire during the entire Journey.
