Recognition for Civilians in Afghanistan

Posted by defensebaseactcomp on May 10, 2012

 

However, the first recipient was Nic Crouch, a private security contractor who was killed whilst working in Iraq.

His parents received the medal posthumously on his behalf last month.

The medal means the world to Nic’s parents. Awarded to their son after his death, it is official recognition for his work supporting the mission in Afghanistan. But they have had to fight for that recognition.

The Civilian Service Medal is now awarded to many outside the military who have supported the Afghan campaign. At a lavish ceremony, 110 civilians received their medal, presented by the Foreign Secretary.
