Ft. Bragg Soldier Honored

A Fort Bragg soldier who crawled 200 feet while being fired upon to save a wounded colleague and then led a group of besieged soldiers to safety has received the Distinguished Service Cross.

Master Sgt. Brendan O'Connor received the cross in a ceremony
Wednesday at Fort Bragg for his actions in Afghanistan. The cross
is the Army's second-highest award for combat valor, behind only
the Medal of Honor.

O'Connor was honored for his actions during a battle in 2006 in
southern Afghanistan. He is assigned to the 7th Special Forces
Group.
