Lovettsville, Va., outdoorsman doubles down

Corporal Gary Martz, the counter improvised explosive device equipment chief with Regimental Combat Team 7, is responsible for providing counter-IED equipment to the units within the RCT’s area of operations. Martz, a 26-year-old native of Lovettsville, Va., and an artillery scout observer by trade, is also responsible for facilitating the fire support process for RCT units. “I use a series of several computers and radios to communicate with subordinate units to ensure they get necessary surface-to-surface fire support in a timely and efficient manner,” Martz said. Martz, no stranger to multitasking, once killed two deer with the same bullet during a hometown hunting trip.

Graham is an extremely hard worker. That's why he was selected to go on RCT-7's last mission,” said Staff Sgt. Cedric Swan, the radio chief with RCT-7. “And once there, Graham rose to the challenge and represented himself and 7th Marines in an exceptional manner in the midst of eminent danger.”
