Medal of Honor



Rank and Organization: Private First Class, U.S. Army, Company C, 3d Machine Gun Battalion, 1st Division. Place and Date: Near Soissons, France, 18 July 1918. Entered Service At: Bruceville, Tex. Born: 9 April 1897, Moorville, Tex. G. O. No.: 14, W.D., 1923.


: Reporting for duty from hospital where he had been for several weeks under treatment for numerous and serious wounds and although suffering intense pain from a shattered arm, he crawled alone into an enemy trench for the purpose of capturing or killing enemy soldiers known to be concealed therein. He killed 4 of the men and took the remaining 4 men prisoners; while conducting them to the rear one of the enemy was killed by a high explosive enemy shell which also completely shattered 1 of Pfc. Edwards' legs, causing him to be immediately evacuated to the hospital. The bravery of Pfc. Edwards, now a tradition in his battalion because of his previous gallant acts, again caused the morale of his comrades to be raised to high pitch.
