NAVAL SUPPORT FACILITY INDIAN HEAD, MD -- Warrant Officer Daniel Pare, an explosive ordnance disposal officer, with Chemical Biological Incident Response Force (CBIRF), receives the Bronze Star Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device for heroic service in connection with combat operations against the enemy in support of Operation Enduring Freedom while serving as an explosive ordnance disposal team lead, 2nd Marine Logistics Group (Forward), II Marine Expeditionary Force (Forward), in Watan Kalay, Gereshk Valley, Afghan., from Apr. 9, 2011 to Oct. 24, 2011.

Pare, a native of Bristol, Mass., disposed of more than 47,000 pounds of explosive material including 30 improvised explosive devices and 11 enemy weapons caches during this time period.

On July 15, 2011, he rendered aid to a seriously wounded soldier while under heavy enemy fire, and after leaving his covered position, he maneuvered to the wounded soldier and administered critical medical aid until the wounded soldier was evacuated.

While further assisting in the defense of his unit’s position, Pare located a spotter for enemy mortars and directly engaged him with a M2CG recoilless rifle system, ultimately succeeding in neutralizing the enemy observer and decimating the enemy’s will to persist.

On July 15, 2011, he rendered aid to a seriously wounded soldier while under heavy enemy fire, and after leaving his covered position, he maneuvered to the wounded soldier and administered critical medical aid until the wounded soldier was evacuated.

While further assisting in the defense of his unit’s position, Pare located a spotter for enemy mortars and directly engaged him with a M2CG recoilless rifle system, ultimately succeeding in neutralizing the enemy observer and decimating the enemy’s will to persist.
