An Air Force surgical technician has been awarded the Bronze Star for his life-saving work providing care for more than 600 combat casualties while deployed to the Middle East last year.

Officials presented Staff Sgt. Johnathan Randall, a SOST member assigned to the 720th Operational Support Squadron, with the military's fourth-highest medal during a ceremony at Hurlburt Field, Florida, last month.

As part of a six-member team, Randall administered surgical care for 644 combat casualties, assisting in 16 damage control surgeries, 46 resuscitations and 70 advanced procedures. He also assisted in 35 forward-deployed casualty collection points during Operation Inherent Resolve between January and June 2019.
