Dear Mr. Tong,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the Special Orders Relating to Personnel of the Medical Department, 1917 - 1919 in the Records of the American Expeditionary Forces (World War I) (Record Group 120) that may include the citations for the Distinguished Service Medal. We also located the Historical Reports of General Hospitals, 5/1/1917 - 5/31/1920 in the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112) for general and special orders.of medical personnel. Unfortunately, we are unable to physically check these series for you. For access eventually to these records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
