MARSOC MSgt to Receive Silver Star Today

| May 12, 2014

MSgt Donovan E. Petty, assigned to 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion, Camp Lejeune, NC, will receive the Silver Star today.  The decoration will be presented by the  Maj Gen Mark A Clark, Commander, MARSOC, at a ceremony at Stone Bay.

MSgt Petty is receiving the award for heroism in Afghanistan on 1 November 2012.

The Marine Corps Times has an article giving some of the details of MSgt Petty’s actions that day.  After reading it, I’d say the decoration is fully deserved.  Cojones muy grandes, indeed.

Damn well done, MSgt Petty.  Kudos.
