As part of his Project Hero series at QandO.net Bruce McQuain profiled recipients of the the Silver Star. Of SFC Gerald A. Wolford he wrote the following,
"Wolford and his crew epitomize the everyday valor displayed by members of our armed forces. The camaraderie, professionalism and the vow never to let their buddies down are all evident in the way this crew fought, endured and persevered. They are soldiers of whom we should all be proud."
And what exactly did Wolford and his crew do? According to his Silver Star citation,
“Staff Sgt. Wolford’s action served to inspire other Soldiers on the battlefield and motivated his section to continue to firefight despite physical injury, vehicle damage and fatigue,” the citation said.
Tonight, Bruce told us the rest of his story.
The Someone You Should Know radio collaboration began as an extension of Matt Burden’s series at Blackfive. Thanks to Matt, Bruce is now on board and we are thrilled to have him as part of the program.
