MILITARY: Spec. Forces team garners ten Silver Stars - a record!

Capt. Kyle Walton and his Spec. Forces team from ...
Capt. Kyle Waltonthe 3rd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group had been sent to kill or capture terrorists from a rugged valley that had never been penetrated by U.S. forces — or, they had been told, the Soviets before them.

He peered over the side of the cliff to the dry river bed 60 feet below and considered his options. Could he roll the wounded men off and then jump to safety? Would they survive the fall?

By the end of the six-hour battle deep within the Shok Valley, Walton would bear witness to heroics that on Friday would earn his team 10 Silver Stars, the most for a single battle in Afghanistan.

We owe these guys a really loud ho-rah ... God bless you and your team Captain.

    Love the blog! Thank you for passing on the story of these American heros. They don't hand out many of those Silver Stars. HOOAH, indeed.
