    Bronze Star Medal with Valor
    Corporal Michael Connelly
    While serving under Bandit 1 during Operation Twilight Angel, Corporal Michael Connelly displayed acts of skill and heroism that went above and beyond the call of duty. Upon being the last non-ambulatory member of the Alpha Fireteam, CPL. Connelly conducted first responder treatment and was crucial in the recovery of both the Bandit-1 leadership element, and ensuring the continuity of the squad during a one-life operation; despite the critical nature of his own wounds. Continuing to perform throughout the operation with an injured leg, CPL. Connelly continued to move with his recovered squad and was critical for ensuring Bandit-1's mission success by laying down consistently accurate 40mm and suppressive fire, continuing to engage targets while sustaining injuries himself. Ultimately, when the squad experienced a second mass-casualty situation, Corporal Connelly successfully recovered his squad mates and provided cover for inbound medical elements. Corporal Connelly, throughout the operation, displayed intrepidity, skill and critical actions that are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon itself and the 7th Cavalry Regiment.
