Sergeant Thomas Bauschke of San Juan Island has been awarded a Bronze Star for valor for his actions as a Combat Medic in coming to the aid of the injured in a firefight in Afghanistan. Readers of Bauschke's columns in the Island Guardian may recall the occasion that also resulted in Bauschke earning a Purple Heart when he was injured while aiding others. The citation reads:

THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

To all who shall see these presents, greeting: This is to certify that the President of the United States Of America authorized by executive order, 24 August 1962 has awarded

THE BRONZE STAR MEDAL
WITH "V" DEVICE

TO Sergeant Thomas G Bauschke
1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry Regiment.


For Valorous and Meritorious actions while engaged in direct combat operations in support of Operation Enduring Freedom on 1 May 2009. Sergeant Bauschke's courage and selfless dedication in a combat zone, under the most extreme circumstances, greatly contributed to the fight against the War on Terrorism. Sergeant Bauschke's actions reflect great credit upon himself, Task Force Mountain Warrior, Combined Task Force-82 and The United States Central Command.

Given under my hand in the city of Washington this 20th day of November 2009
