    Is Awarded To

    Private Alfredo Balzagn

    For heroism in action under direct enemy fire while serving as a Rifleman in the 7th Cavalry Regiment, during Operation Bitter Wind on 29Jun19. During the assault on the town of Foy, Pvt. Balzagn’s squad leader was Killed in Action, leaving a small contingent of Dog Squad cut off and pinned down. Pvt. Balzagn took charge of the remaining members of Dog and led a flank on the enemy. His actions allowed the 7th Cavalry to successfully secure the town and for reinforcements to arrive. Pvt. Balzagn’s personal skill and devotion to duty were critical to the success of the mission and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military forces of the Unites States and reflect great credit upon himself and the 7th Cavalry Regiment.

    Congratulations!
