SSG Michael Young awarded the Silver Star for actions on 27 April 2017

SSG Michael Young awarded the Silver Star today:

The 75th Ranger Regiment


Fort Benning, Ga.

Staff Sgt. Michael Young, Headquarters Platoon Sergeant, C Company, 3rd Ranger Battalion received the Silver Star Medal for his actions April 27, 2017.

The citation reads:

For Gallantry in action April 27, 2017 during combat operations against an armed enemy of the United States, as a Ranger Weapons Squad Leader for a Joint Task Force in support of Operation Freedom's Sentinel.

Staff Sgt. Michael Young and the rest of his strike force received intense and precise enemy fire simultaneously from multiple covered positions in all directions immediately upon a helicopter insertion to conduct a raid.

Realizing the significant threat the enemy posed to his element, he aggressively exposed himself to direct fires to eliminate the enemy and protect the force.

Staff Sergeant Young's heroic actions while under effective enemy fire directly saved the lives of 22 Ranger and were instrumental to destroying multiple fortified enemy positions.

Staff Sergeant Young's Distinctive accomplishments are in keeping with the finest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, this Command and the United States Army.

Rangers Lead the Way!

I really do like when those that deserve them get them. It does look like the good SSG Young is very uncomfortable and would prefer to be in a TIC.

Tip of the beret to SSG Young.
