Quinn earns Silver Star

21 Oct 2003

Master Sgt. Pat Quinn, a team sergeant in 2nd Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group, was awarded the Silver Star Sept. 10 for his actions during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He was awarded the medal for leading his team and a group of Kurdish militia during a battle with an Iraqi armored unit April 2-5. During the battle, Quinn's actions resulted in, among other things, the destruction of two tanks, four armored personnel carriers, 30 dead Iraqi soldiers and the seizure of 30 kilometers of ground.

But the medal isn't just about him.

"To me, it's a tribute to everything that my (detachment) did during our fighting in Iraq," said Quinn. "As I wear it the rest of my life, I'll always think of the guys I was with, not what I personally did."

Good job Pat

I had the honor of spending some quality time with Pat on Curry Range at Devens in the early 90's. I am glad to see he has done well and I am proud that I got a chance to work with him.

Pat if you are around, shoot me a PM.
