H.R.H. the Doux of St Cyriacus awarded the Pour le Merite to US Army Sargent Charles Breeden at the Joint Lewis-McChord Base in Washington State during the uncovering of colors. The medal was given for humanitarian services rendered in the field during deployment.
While on a mission, Sgt Breeden was called to saved the life of an influential tribal leader. The leader was saved through Sgt. Breeden's quick response and skill.
Due to Sgt. Breeden's actions, this leader rethought his position in life and his attitude towards American military service personnel. Through interpreters, the tribal leader invited Sgt. Breeden to become a member of the tribe. Upon approval from his command, his entire unit was invited to a feast with one of the Imam present.
After that event US troops met with total cooperation. Rather than hostility, they were met with friendship and many lives were spared, this was accomplished with compassion and a medical kit. My personal thanks and congratulations to Sgt Charles Breeden!
