Silver Stars awarded to two Green Berets and a pararescueman for close-quarters Taliban battle | Stars & Stripes

Two Green berets and a pararescue man are now being awarded and recognized for their heroism last year. They were awarded Silver Stars. They were given these at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla in the rock during a small ceremony that also honored some of those who died in combat a year prior. According to Stars and Stripes, “The Silver Stars were awarded to service members who braved enemy fire to “thwart the enemy attack” and who “undoubtedly saved the lives of team members” while risking their own during the harrowing August battle, officials said.
