    A Bronze Star with Combat Distinguishing Device hangs from Warrant Officer Kelly Minklers uniform, April 18. Minkler, the operations officer for 1st Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company, 1st Marine Logistics Group (Forward), was awarded the medal for his actions as an explosive ordnance disposal section leader on Sept. 3, 2010. Minkler rendered safe a command pull improvised explosive device, which consisted of an anti-disturbance switch and a 35 pound directional fragmentation charge – a tactic that had never before been seen.
