Congratulations Corporal McDerpins.
It is an honour and privilege to award this Distinguished Bravery Medal for displaying an impressive and selfless act during active duty.
I quote CAPT DORNZ, “It started with a BTR pining the entire squad in a compound whilst having just escaped our little hut (escape OP). Having been shot in the head and downed by this BTR, I was left in the open with a hail of lead flying past me. Whilst the rest of the squad moved around the building to flank the BTR and enemies surrounding it, CPL McDerpins crossed through this hail of lead, over the road to my position to revive me. This was a situation he did not have to go into but shows how far he would go for his squad members and his actions hold true to this.”
Well Done Corporal, your courage and bravery in the face of danger has brought great pride to this Battalion.
Nemo Miles Hic Reliquit.
