Robert Healy, Task Force Workhorse, 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade, TF Falcon)BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – Many armed services personnel are separated from their families for a long period of time on a regular basis due to deployments. Although some military members have a spouse or other family member that is also in the military and deploys frequently, rarely are they deployed at the same time or to the same location.

    In Afghanistan, two brothers have found themselves deployed, not only at the same time, but to the same location as well. U.S. Army Sgt. 1st Class Dempsey Walker, supply support activity platoon sergeant, Company A, Task Force Workhorse, 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade, Task Force Falcon, from Atmore, Ala., has spent 24 years in the Army and is currently on his fourth deployment.  His brother, U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Nicholas Walker, a computer systems manager with the Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force – Afghanistan, also from Atmore, has spent 17 years in the Air Force and is currently on his third deployment. Both are deployed to Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan.

  • Private First Class Andrew F. Bluhm

    PDF Print E-mail

    PFC Bluhm was the gunner on the platoon leader’s truck as his platoon served as the QRF for B Troop.  The QRF was called to evacuate three casualties when the patrol received fire from the north.  PFC Bluhm returned highly effective suppressive fire, until his MK19 malfunctioned.  He immediately transitioned to the M249 SAW and continued to suppress and destroy the enemy.  Shortly thereafter, Bluhm’s platoon was attacked again and because of his highly successful suppressive fire, he began receiving direct sniper and small arms fire in addition to RPG rounds from different enemy positions.  On his own initiative and without regard to his own personal safety, PFC Bluhm took control of the vehicle and ordered the driver to maneuver the truck to provide cover for friendly forces.  Thanks to his efforts, no additional injuries were sustained at the site.

         PFC Bluhm’s heroism under fire exemplifies the Warrior Ethos.  His professionalism, selfless commitment to mission success, and care for his fellow Soldiers were instrumental to the mission being a success.
