CPL Ryan James AVERY
accompanying the award of Medal For
CPL Ryan Avery.
For acts of gallantry in action in
hazardous circumstances on 4
December 2010 while a sniper team
member in Mentoring Task Force - Two
on Operation SLIPPER in Afghanistan.
Corporal Avery is an exemplary
soldier whose courage and
selflessness under fire allowed the
safe withdrawal of his patrol in the
face of significant enemy forces.
His fearless action in repeatedly
exposing himself to enemy fire to
better engage his opponents and
protect the lives of his patrol
mates was an inspiration to all.
