    Lt. Col. Christopher H. Oliver, the commanding officer of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 362, pins the Purple Heart Medal on Staff Sgt. Andrew Peterson during a formation outside Hangar 102, Sept. 24. Peterson, a CH-53D Sea Stallion crew chief and maintenance controller for HMH-362, was awarded the medal for a combat wound he sustained in Afghanistan earlier this year. The 30-year-old native of Columbia, S.C., was shot in the back by a 7.62-mm round while conducting an extraction raid in southern Helmand province, March 20. Members of Peterson’s family were also present to witness the formation and honor him with the award.
