For exceptionally meritorious and distinguished service in a position of great responsibility to the Government of the United States, during a grave emergency. By his leadership and executive ability while Acting Deputy Chief of Staff of the Army of the United States (1939 - 1940), Brigadier General Gasser has made an important contribution to the National Defense. Denied by force of circumstances the increased rank appropriate to his high position, the vigor and efficiency with which he has carried out the exacting cuties of his office afford a fine example of the highest soldier qualities.
