In their own words

After a few years in college at the University of Virginia, Dawson County native Adam Kimbrell joined the Army. Within a few months, he found himself living in an abandoned hut in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

"We went to an area where the surge had been pushed to - a place where the Taliban had controlled for the last four years," the 25-year-old Army Infantryman said. "Our job was to go back in and take it all back over and separate the insurgents from the people, which we did. We did a real good job in doing that."
