RECOGNITION FOR ACTIONS
U.S. Army Pfc. Laura Lefler is one of 12 service members to receive recognition in Afghanistan, Oct. 30, 2011, for actions they took Oct. 26 when their convoy was ambushed twice while traveling through Afghanistan's Tangi Valley. The team overcame a 45-minute complex attack in which insurgents used rocket propelled grenades, small arms fire and improvised explosive devices.
