FORT BRAGG, N.C. (USASOC News Service, June 13, 2012) – Two Green Berets from 3rd Special Forces Group (Airborne) were awarded the Distinguished Service Cross in a ceremony held at the John F. Kennedy Auditorium June 12.
Chief Warrant Officer Jason W. Myers and Staff Sgt. Corey M. Calkins received the U.S. Army’s second highest award for valor for two separate missions in Afghanistan in 2010. The Distinguished Service Cross is second only to the Medal of Honor.
“I am extremely honored and humbled to receive this award,” said Calkins, a senior weapons sergeant and native of Midland, Mich. “I was just the one called on that day but I know any other guy on my team would have done the same thing.”
