Silver Star medal ceremony, Staff Sgt. Mathew Matlock, 1-503 INF,


Hundreds of maroon-bereted Soldiers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team gathered Nov. 30 to honor Staff Sgt. Mathew Matlock, a noncommissioned officer from Company C, 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment for actions he took under fire to save Soldiers in Afghanistan.

Paratroopers stood at attention at Caserma Ederle’s post theater as Maj. Gen. William B. Garrett III, commander of U.S. Army Africa, fastened the Silver Star to Matlock’s uniform.

During the ceremony, Matlock’s thoughts turned to guys who were with him that day and what they endured.
