    Gunnery Sgt. Travis Bouten, explosive ordnance disposal team leader, 1st Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 7th Engineer Support Battalion, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group, 28, from Spokane, Wash., stands at the position of attention after receiving a Bronze Star Medal with combat distinguishing device for actions while deployed in Afghanistan, at Camp Pendleton, Calif., May 18. Bouten, who at the time was a staff sergeant serving with 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, Regimental Combat Team 2, 1st Marine Division (Forward), as an EOD team leader. Within minutes, after responding and detonating two improvised explosive devices, Bouten spotted a third pull-string IED aimed at his sweep team. The string to this explosive was actively being pulled when Bouten quickly grabbed and cut the string with his knife saving the lives of his fellow Marines.
