Bronze Star for Master Sergeant James Love

One of Georgia’s own will receive a Bronze Start today for his service to our country in Afghanistan.  The Georgia Air National Guard reports:

The National Guard says Senior Master Sgt. James Love is scheduled to receive the Bronze Start during a ceremony Friday at Robins Air Force Base. He will be presented the award by Maj. Gen. Jim Butterworth, the Georgia National Guard’s top commander.

Military officials say Love was nominated for the medal for his service in Afghanistan with the 116th Civil Engineering Squadron. While deployed, Love’s team helped enhance security on Afghanistan’s Highway 1 and completed 174 construction projects for coalition forces valued at $40 million.

The Georgia National Guard says Love is the fifth member of the 116th Civil Engineering Squadron to be awarded the Bronze Star since 2010.

Congrats on a job well done, Master Sergeant.

    Well done, Senior Master Sergeant Love. And, three cheers for an enlisted guy getting a medal. I hear tales from my old Army buddies about a bit of grade inflation going on with the awards, in which commissioned officers earn a Legion of Merit for showing up while an E-5 needs to take hostile fire before being considered for an ARCOM.
