One of TSAC's contact Marines was awarded the following Citation: (His last name is redacted for unit security.)

Gunnery Sergeant Scott A. *********, United States Marine Corps, distinguished himself through outstanding leadership, gallantry, integrity and moral courage while assigned as a Team Chief, Marine Special Operations Team ****, Special Operations Task Force - ********** 2D Marine Raider Battalion, Marine Raider Regiment, Unites States Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command from 20 July 2017 to 6 December 2017. during this period, Gunnery Sergeant *********’s courageous leadership and relentless determination during operations against the Islamic State of Iraq and Ash-sham epitomized the warrior ethos. As the driving force behind this initiative; he advised, assisted, accompanied and enabled operations to liberate the last remaining enemy stronghold in northern Iraq. Gunnery Sergeant ********* united over 10,000 Iraqi security forces through his courageous example and aggressive pursuit of victory. He advised the senior Iraqi military commanders throughout the planning and stood firmly by his partners during all phases of execution. Undaunted by enemy counter attacks, indirect fire, machine gun fire and numerous vehicle borne improvised explosive device attacks, his unwavering commitment to mission accomplishment emboldened the Iraq forces, inspired his subordinates and exemplified the expectation of an United States Special Operations Forces warrior. For seventy-nine days, he conducted continuous combat operations and led his team to kill 185 enemy fighters while liberating Tal Afaar, the Hawijah Pocket and 1,600 square kilometers of enemy-held terrain. By his persistent leadership, decisive action and extraordinary courage, Gunnery Sergeant ******** reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Special Operations Command.

TSAC is VERY PROUD to have been able to support this unit with snacks and comfort items during their extraordinarily dangerous 6 month deployment.
It is through the generous contributions from our mountain community that TSAC is able carry on this effort to show that LOTS of Americans really CARE about what these troops endure.
