General Order
GALLAGHER, JOHN J.
Synopsis:
The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Service Cross to John J. Gallagher, Technical Sergeant, U.S. Army, for extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an armed enemy in action against enemy forces on 3 February 1945. Technical Sergeant Gallagher's intrepid actions, personal bravery and zealous devotion to duty exemplify the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.
Headquarters, U.S. Forces-Pacific, General Orders No. 12 (1945)

The DSC ranks right after the Medal of Honor and before the Silver Star. I think this DSC was based on my Dad's (Francis Jerrett) nomination of Gallagher for the Medal of Honor, and it is why he never heard of the MOH being given to Gallagher. OR- it could be based on Clark Irving's recommendations.
