Corporal Michael P. Toomey, Rifleman, 2/5 Bronze Star w/Combat V

Corporal Michael P. Toomey,  2nd Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, receives congratulations from a fellow Marine after receiving the Bronze Star Medal with a Combat V during a ceremony here, April 18, 2013. Toomey, a native of San Francisco, was recognized for heroic actions on May 8, 2012, while deployed to Musa Qal'ah district, Helmand province, Afghanistan. Toomey led a fire team of Marines in a hasty ambush against an insurgent machine gun team firing from a  tree line. During the assault, Toomey shot an enemy fighter and threw a grenade at their position, causing the remaining insurgents to run from the Marines for the rest of the operation.
