Fallen Sky Soldier gets Silver Star Upgraded

Another hero of Afghanistan’s notorious Combat Outpost Keating will have his Silver Star elevated to the military’s second highest award for valor, according to a release from the 173rd Airborne Brigade.

Maj. Tom Bostick was serving as commander of B Troop, 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade when he was killed in action during the Battle of Saret Koleh in July 2007.

On March 1, he will be awarded the Distinguished Service Cross in a ceremony at Fort Carson, Colorado.

Bostick was killed while providing covering fire for his soldiers so they could move to defensive positions, according to his citation.
