Staff Sgt. Pitts deployed twice to Afghanistan and in 2008, distinguished himself by extraordinary acts of heroism.

When his observation post was attacked, he was severely wounded and his unit sustained heavy casualties. Staff Sgt. Pitts took control of the post and returned fire until reinforcements arrived. His courage and commitment to the defense of his unit prevented the enemy from capturing fallen American soldiers.

For his conspicuous gallantry at the risk of his life beyond the call of duty,  Staff Sgt. Ryan Pitts received the Medal of Honor.

The Brewers thank Staff Sgt. Pitts and all military personnel for your service.
