    Colonel Jason Bohm, commanding officer, 5th Marine Regiment, speaks to Sgt. Matthew T. Woodall, former squad leader, Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, before an award ceremony at the Camp San Mateo parade deck here, Aug. 2, 2013. Woodall, a native of Paducah, Ky., earned the Silver Star Medal, the nation’s third highest military award for valor for his actions in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. A platoon-sized enemy force attacked Woodall and his Marines from several fortified positions during a security patrol mission in the Sangin district of Helmand, July 10 through 11, 2011. His daring actions ultimately defeated the enemy attack, killing four insurgents and wounding many others.
