In recognition of Sliver Star Service Day, Trident 1 would like to highlight our COO, former Navy SEAL, Petty Officer First Class, Daniel Peterson.
Daniel received the Silver Star for his heroic actions while serving as Team Leader in the Logar District of Afghanistan in 2014.
His citation reads: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action against the enemy on 21 May 2014 as a Reconnaissance Team Leader in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM. Demonstrating poise and bravery, Petty Officer Peterson advanced through heavy enemy fire to save the lives of two grievously wounded teammates. Disregarding the risk to his own safety, he held the enemy’s attention to allow two teammates to seek cover, and then engaged and suppressed one enemy position despite the machine gun and rocket-propelled grenade fire pouring in on him from a second enemy position.
See attached for full citation.…
Thank you Daniel for you service, sacrifice and continued leadership! 🇺🇸
