    Colonel Kenneth M. DeTreux, the commanding officer of 8th Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Division, shakes the hand of Woodstock, Ga., native Lance Cpl. Jeffrey Cole (right) after presenting him with the nation’s third highest award for valor, the Silver Star. “I don’t think I deserve it,” Cole mentioned. “Nothing I did comes close to the Marines I was with. Pinned down in a ditch, wounded, they fought for an hour against an enemy that got within 30 meters. Not once did they waiver. This award isn’t my award. It’s their award and all the guys who we lost who can’t wear it now, I’ll wear it for them since they can’t.”
