Abstract:
Only fourteen American soldiers in World War I received the British Military Medal, and Frank C. Roseman of Spencer, was one of them. During the operation of 29 September 1918, near Bellicourt, Roseman, was on duty as a guard while his squad was at work. Upon being halted by two Germans who had penetrated the lines, he threw himself on the ground and shot both of them, barely avoiding their fire. His presence of mind and immediate action permitted the continuance of the work without interruption.
