AFSOC Medic Receives Bronze Star

The Air Force has awarded a Bronze Star medal to Lt. Col. Terence Mitchell, the chief of medical staff with the 1st Special Operations Medical Group at Hurlburt Field, Fla., for his actions while deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom. He provided health care to military and civilian personnel and showed “an extraordinary ability to operate in the most uncertain and fluid combat environments,” according to the medal citation. Col. Dale Agner, 1st SOMDG commander, called the award “very well-earned.” (Hurlburt report by A1C Joe McFadden)
