    Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force – Arabian Peninsula
    BALAD, Iraq (Courtesy of CJSOTF-AP Public Affairs, August 12, 2008) – In 1962, President John F. Kennedy called the Green Beret “a symbol of excellence, a badge of courage, a mark of distinction in the fight for freedom.” More than 46 years later, a Special Forces operator lived up to those words and upheld its traditions during a deployment to Samarra, Iraq.

    Sergeant 1st Class Sean Howie, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), was awarded the 2008 First Special Service Force Frederick Award for his professional excellence and courage under fire during a deployment to Samarra, Iraq in 2007.*

    The Special Forces medical sergeant conducted 215 consecutive days of continuous combat operations as the operations sergeant in an area deemed one of the most hostile in Iraq at the time.
