Army Cook Assigned To SF Awarded Bronze Star, Combat Action Badge

Okay guys...guess we'll have to quit using the old "I'm only a cook!" line in the bars.

Army cook Assigned To Special Forces Detachment Earns Bronze Star, Combat Action Badge

Towards the end of the combat tour, the ODA commander submitted a list of forthcoming tour award write ups and included Rodriguez-Torres’ name for recommendation of the Bronze Star.

“I initially received resistance with a comment of ‘a cook?’ We've never had a cook receive a BSM,’" said the ODA commander. “I replied by sending the BSM citation in which I depicted Sergeant Rodriguez-Torres' phenomenal performance, to include his tireless work ethic and courage under fire. After that, the award was processed without any further question.”

Pics show Rodriguez-Torres receiving the BSM from SOCEUR CDR (MG Repass) and CAB from CDR 1-10th SFGA (LTC Peltier).


Outstanding job, SGT Rodriguez-Torres!
