Pundit Review - Someone You Should Know - Staff Sergeant Trevor D. Tow
Sun, 29 Apr 2012|
The President of the United States of America takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star to Staff Sergeant Trevor D. Tow, United States Army, for gallantry in action. Staff Sergeant Trevor D. Tow distinguished himself by exceptionally valorous achievement as a Ranger Squad Leader on August 18, 2010, while deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. When his squad took two casualties during and ambush by three enemy personnel from an elevated, fortified fighting position less than ten feet away, Staff Sergeant Trevor D. Tow with total disregard for his own safety stepped out into the open to suppress the enemy and allowed his squad to pull the injured squad members to safety. Staff Sergeant Tow continued to engage the enemy from an uncovered position despite taking cyclic AK-47 fire and blasts from fragmentation grenades. Staff Sergeant Trevor D. Tow eliminated two of the three enemy combatants with well placed shots.
