My son is very proud of his friend, Sgt. First Class Jonathan Drew. Jon received a Silver Star. The Silver Star is the third-highest military decoration for valor and is given for gallantry in action against a U.S. enemy. The awards took place at Fort Bragg.
The article from the Associated Press states, “Drew was honored for actions on April 11, 2012, when he led a group of Afghan soldiers that had come under attack during a community meeting. An Afghan woman was shot in the chest during the 15-hour attack. Drew administered her first aid, provided cover fire while she was evacuated and repeatedly exposed himself to enemy fire in order to protect Afghan civilians, soldiers and government officials while neutralizing 10 to 15 enemy forces.
Thank you, Sgt. First Class Jonathan Drew for your courage and valor protecting those in need. God bless you and keep you safe.
