Last Known Activity

He was awarded the Medal of Honor while serving as a Lieutenant at Vera Cruz, Mexico, on April 21-22, 1914 for "distinguished conduct in battle, engagement of Vera Cruz."

Died at sea on August 10, 1919 of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Other Comments:


"For distinguished conduct in battle, engagements of Vera Cruz, 21 and 22 April 1914. Eminent and conspicuous in command of his battalion, Lt. Castle was in the fighting of both days, and exhibited courage and skill in leading his men through action. In seizing the customhouse, he encountered for many hours the heaviest and most pernicious concealed fire of the entire day, but his courage and coolness under trying conditions were marked."
