"Lieut. Col. Arthur A. Moller, (B), 12551, distinguished himself by meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services during the period 1 January 1943 to 2 June 1945. Lieut. Col. Arthur A. Moller, in his capacity as Deputy Director of Army Requirements and Secretary to the United States Requirements 2nd Supply Committee of the British War Office, has invariably and unfailingly done everything possible to expedite and ease the procurement of supplies for the United State Army under reciprocal Aid. Lieut. Col. Moller has shown a genuine desire to see that all American demands, however difficult for British capacity, should be met. He has been instrumental in the supply of over 19.000 tons of materials used to waterproof vehicles for the Normandy invasion and over 20.000.000 Jerri-Cans for the further prosecution of the war. This Officer has guided and advised procurement officers of all U.S. Procurement services for the past two and one-half years and has made a very real contribution toward our procurement of over fourteen millions of ships tons of supplies from His Majesty's Government on a Reciprocal Aid basis. Without this Officer's understanding and intelligence cooperation, war procurement problem would have been infinitely more acute and in some cases impossible."
