We were told on Monday, April 2, that Mark’s Silver Star has been approved. We are very happy and honored for this news, confirming Mark’s heroic actions on 29 September 2010. Our son, and little brother gave all.
There will be a ceremony soon, and we will post more info; including the citation, once this takes place. We appreciate Mark’s leaders and teammates who trained and fought by his side during his three years in the Air Force.
Combat Control Net has a short article about his Silver Star here.
