Today at Hunter Army Airfield, soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Aviation were awarded medals for their service in Iraq. Thirty-eight Bronze Stars were presented to troops for a job well done, as well as medals for meritorious service, commendation and achievement.

Missions included VIP support, combat assaults, medevac and aircraft recovery.

"It just shows the patriotism that we have," said Staff Sgt. Niya Stinson with the Headquarters Company. "We had a job to do, and we went over and did that job and brought everybody home."

In all, 337 medals were handed out. Members of the battalion redeployed in January.
