FORT BRAGG, N.C.(USASOC News Service, Sept. 10, 2008) – The widow of a Special Forces Soldier with the 1st Battalion, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), accepted her fallen husband’s Silver Star Medal during a ceremony Sept. 9 near the unit’s headquarters.

Gisela and Dalia Munoz, surviving wife and daughter of Sgt. 1st Class Pedro A. Munoz, participated in the ceremony honoring his sacrifice on Jan. 2, 2005, when he was fatally wounded at Shindand, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.


Munoz was previously awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Valor device; however, the award was recently upgraded to the Silver Star. The ceremony recognizing the upgrade was held in a commemorative rock garden designed by his daughter.

I'm glad they upgraded the BZ with V Device, he earned it.

Congrats to the Munoz family for the SS and to the Hero that walked among them.

RIP Sgt. 1st Class Pedro A. Munoz.....:(
