The night was so dark that Sgt. Craig D. Warfle couldn’t see the enemy in the wood line in front of him. All he knew was his fellow Ranger had been shot and he needed to suppress the enemy until his wounded comrade could be moved to safety.
For his actions on that night, Aug. 18, 2010, Warfle was awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the second-highest award for valor.
“It’s very humbling,” Warfle said. “This attention is kind of foreign to me.”
Warfle, of 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, was awarded the DSC during a ceremony Oct. 26 at Hunter Army Airfield, Ga. Army Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno presided over the ceremony.
At the ceremony, three other Rangers from 1st Battalion received the Silver Star, the third-highest award for valor.
