    Lieutenant Colonel Jason Perry, the former commanding officer of 2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, shakes the hand of Chad Wilson after his brother, Sgt. Wade Wilson, was posthumously awarded the Silver Star Medal during a ceremony here, March 14, 2013. Wilson, a native of Centerville, Texas, received the nation's third highest decoration for valor for putting himself in between insurgent fire and a wounded Marine while serving in Musa Qa'leh district, Helmand province, Afghanistan on May 11, 2012. Wilson sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was mortally wounded while advancing toward the insurgent, who fled and was killed by his fellow Marines. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Sgt. Jacob H.
