Special Forces Unit Member Killed in Niger Ambush Honored for Bravery | Military.com

The Army recently awarded Sgt. 1st Class Jeremiah Johnson with a posthumous Bronze Star with Valor device for his heroism during the October 2017 Niger ambush that killed him and three other Special Forces soldiers.

The vicious Oct. 4 enemy ambush touched off a firestorm of allegations that the Green Beret team and Nigerien troops were sent on a poorly planned, last-minute raid to capture a suspected terrorist without support or air cover. The investigation that followed led to disciplinary actions taken against nine individuals as a result of failures in judgment, preparation or actions in the ambush.
