Two days ago--our SOTF lost a Medic that was killed in action bringing freedom to Western Uruzgan

Sgt. 1st Class Calvin B. Harrison, 31, was killed Sept. 28, during a combat operation in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan. He was a Special Forces medical sergeant assigned to Company A, 2nd Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne). Harrison was born March 11, 1979, in Cleveland, Texas. He graduated from Jones High School in Coldspring, Texas, and enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1998 as a psychological operations specialist. He served with the 4th Psychological Operations Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, N.C., as a psychological operations specialist. In 2007, Harrison completed the Special Forces Qualification Course and earned the coveted "Green Beret" as a Special Forces medical sergeant, 18D. He was then assigned to the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), also at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Harrison’s military education includes the Basic Airborne Course, Warrior Leader Course, Advanced Leaders Course, Special Forces Qualification Course and Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape Course. Harrison’s awards and decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, Army Commendation Medal, two Army Achievement Medals, Army Good Conduct Medal (third award), National Defense Service Medal, Kosovo Campaign Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal, the Iraq Campaign Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Noncommissioned Officer Professional Development Ribbon with numeral three, Army Service Ribbon, Special Forces Tab, Combat Infantryman Badge and Parachutist Badge.

He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star Medal (second award), the Purple Heart and the Meritorious Service Medal. Harrison is survived by two daughters, Azalia, Eleanna, and his parents, Jack Washington and Betty Harrison of Cleveland, Texas.

God bless him, his family, his wife and his daughters

RIP, hermano.

Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.

You will not be forgotten.

"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day."

See you on the other side, brother.

RIP Doc,

Oh, Lord I ask for your divine strength to meet the demands of my profession.

Help me to be the finest medic I can be, both technically and tactically.

If I am called to the battlefield, give me the courage to conserve and protect our fighting forces by providing medical care to all that are in need.

If I am called to a mission of peace and mercy, give me the strength to lead by caring for those who need my assistance.

Finally, Lord give me the strength and insight to take care of my own spiritual, physical, and emotional needs.

Teach me to trust in your presence, protection and never-failing love.

AMEN

A good soldier, intelligent medic, hard worker, and someone who would stand by his buddies in a bar fight against ridiculous odds - Cal was above all a constant source of humor and someone who could be counted on. God help you if you ever became the victim of one of his impromptu verbal smackdowns. I hope his kids are proud. Their father was a good man.

You're going to be missed Calvin. We were lucky to have known you.
