Terry was killed when he was moving a comrade to safety - he crawled 150 meters while under heavy fire. Terry's courage and selfless devotion to duty are of the highest order. Terry was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with "V" Device ... Terry's family and friends are very grateful for what he has done for our country.
