Distinguished Flying Cross
Awarded for Actions During World War II
Service: Navy
Rank: Aviation Radioman Third Class
Division: U.S.S. Saratoga (CV-3)
Citation: The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to Aviation Radioman Third Class Dallas J. Bergeron (NSN: 3602867), United States Navy, for heroism while participating in aerial flight. As gunner of a Bombing Squadron THREE (VB-3) airplane, he took part in dive bombing attacks against Japanese naval forces in the Battle of Midway, 4 to 6 June 1942. Disregarding the extreme danger from intense anti-aircraft fire and fighter opposition, he continued to defend his airplane vigorously and with heroic determination, even though wounded, thereby contributing in a large measure to the glorious and decisive victory of our forces. His great courage and utter disregard of personal safety were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.
