Syracuse KS. Soldier Awarded Silver Star For Bravery

KSCB News - March 20, 2011 7:06 pm

A 24-year-old Kansas soldier has been awarded the Silver Star for his bravery as a medic in Afghanistan.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Peter Gould was in an Afghanistan field hospital in July recovering from severe wounds caused by a roadside bomb when he learned he had been awarded the Silver Star.

He stated he was still in shock then and more concerned about the others in his unit and if they survived the Taliban ambush.

Earlier this month, Gould was officially pinned with the star for his bravery during the firefight that took the life of a Marine and wounded two others.

Attending the ceremony at a Camp Pendleton in California parade deck were Gould’s parents, Joe and Malissa Gould, Syracuse, and some of his seven siblings.
