    FOR

    Outstanding and exceptional skill as a combined arms platoon deployed on the 23rd of May 2020 to Bagango, Sahrani.

    This unit, commanded by Second Lieutenant Gareth Collins, demonstrated their exemplary proficiency in ground and air operations by securing and defending the town of Bagango against overwhelming hostile forces. S2 Intelligence estimated only two companies of hostiles present, but the town was besieged by a regiment of combined-arms ground forces.

    The platoon decimated overwhelming hostiles and reached 50% combat effectiveness by the end of the first hour of combat. An advance to the rear was called to tighten the defensive perimeter and forces consolidated to prepared defences built by ATLAS logistics. Friendly aviation prevented the advance of armour and mechanised assets long enough to establish this rear-guard. The enemy tightened its grip by encircling the Headquarters building, and at 25% combat effectiveness Broken Arrow was called by Second Lieutenant Collins. Only 10 servicemen survived the harrowing bombardment. The SATCOM assessment of hostile KIA totalled 746 combatants and 28 armoured/mechanised assets destroyed by BLUFOR, meaning a ratio of over 12 losses for the enemy for every American loss.

    These actions, demonstrate the gallantry and devotion to duty of these servicemen, bringing great credit to themselves and the 7th Cavalry Regiment as a whole.
