John C. Blue

The President of the United States takes great pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to Staff Sergeant John C. Blue for extraordinary achievement while participating as Waist Gunner on twenty-five bombardment missions over enemy-occupied continental Europe. Displaying great courage and skill, Sergeant Blue, fighting from his gun position has warded off many enemy attacks and has materially aided in the success of each of the twenty-five missions. The courage, coolness, and skill displayed by Sergeant Blue on all these occasions reflect great credit upon himself and the Armed Forces of the United States.
