Marine awarded Bronze Star for training Afghan Army

Maj. Gen. Glenn M. Walters, commanding general of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing, presents retired Master Gunnery Sgt. Robert W. Crumpton with a Bronze Star at MCAS Cherry Point, N.C., Nov. 15. Crumpton was the senior enlisted advisor for a brigade of Afghan troops and directed five embedded training teams teaching the Afghan National Army to conduct professional military operations. “I think my role was to try to win the hearts and minds,” said Crumpton, “to teach the ANA soldier about the roles of their duty: to protect the people, to listen to the people, not to be corrupt, to try to rebuild and build a country that can be fundamentally sound and stand on its own two feet.”
