Spc. Hutchinson discusses the act of the commitment, selfless service, and personal courage that earned him the Silver Star medal for gallantry in action against an enemy of the United States. The 21-year-old private first class was on his first patrol, manning a Mark-19 grenade launcher in a Humvee’s armored turret of a gun truck, when his convoy was ambushed. Because of this Soldier’s actions, not one American life was lost; 17 men went in, 17 came out.
