U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Evan Roberts from Somerset, Pa., admires his Bronze Star, earned for meritorious service in support of Operation Enduring Freedom during an award service at Camp As Sayliyah, Qatar, Feb. 22. "It is a great honor to receive this medal," said Roberts during the ceremony. "I would like to thank my Soldiers. I wouldn't have successfully completed the mission without their help." While deployed to Afghanistan, Roberts increased communication efficiency between U.S. and coalition forces on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. He has built radios for over 40 years.
