Senior Airman Mark Forester, a Special Tactics Airman killed in combat while assisting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan in September 2010, was honored at a building dedication ceremony held by the 24th Special Operations Wing on May 27, 2021, at Hurlburt Field, Florida. “Today I get the privilege of dedicating the Forester Strength and Conditioning Facility here at the Special Tactics Training Squadron and I can’t imagine being anywhere else,” said U.S. Air Force Col. Allison Black, vice commander of the 24th SOW. Forester was awarded the Bronze Star with Valor for heroism in ground combat, and was killed one month later when attempting to retrieve one of his US Army Special Forces teammates. He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star in June of 2012.
