THE ARMY COMMENDATION MEDAL IS AWARDED TO Corporal Pontus Lucander For Heroism and Skill while serving as the CLS of Gunslinger 2 during combat operations on the Island of Malden dated 02SEP20. Gunslinger 2 were firstly inserted into a hot LZ and took direct fire before touching down. Through quick reaction and casualty management, Corporal Lucander was able to stabilise and keep alive four unconscious troopers. All four members returned to combat and remained effective in clearing the subsequent objectives there after. After the airfield was taken and a QRF repelled, numerous casualties and wounds were again taken throughout the firefight. Without Corporal Lucander's tireless work to keep the squad combat effective, the ability to complete objectives would of been jeopardised. Their dedication and skill are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself and the 7th Cavalry Regiment. Congratulations!
