Surgical team on front lines of ISIS war to receive Bronze Stars | Air Force Times

The Air Force will award Bronze Stars to five Special Operations Surgical Team airmen next week, including four who saved many lives under grueling conditions on the front lines of the war against the Islamic State in 2016.

The awards ― the military’s fourth-highest combat medal for heroism ― will be presented Feb. 13 at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Air Force Special Operations Command said in a release Friday.

Emergency medicine physician Lt. Col. Ben Mitchell, nurse anesthetist Lt. Col. Matthew Uber, surgeon Maj. Justin Manley, and emergency room nurse Capt. Cade Reedy of the 720th Operations Support Squadron will receive Bronze Stars for their work assisting civilians and local fighters wounded in the fight against ISIS for two weeks in the summer of 2016.
