AIRMAN FIRST CLASS
ANTHONY J. HYATT
325TH FIGHTER WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS
It's rare to receive a military decoration
for combat as an Airman. It's very rare
to receive the same award your mother
once received. And it's extremely rare to
receive an award that both your mother
and grandfather received before you.
Staff Sgt. Jonathan Morrison, 325th
Civil Engineering Squadron explosive
ordnance disposal craftsman, was awarded
the Bronze Star Medal Friday morning
at the 53rd Weapons Evaluation Group
"It's all just part of me doing my job,"
said Sergeant Morrison.
The Bronze Star Medal is a United
States Armed Forces individual military
decoration, which is awarded for bravery,
acts of merit or meritorious service in
"Our Airmen risk their lives in defense
of our freedom, our liberty and justice. I
see no higher purpose than to protect the
American way of life, which is based on
U.S. constitutional value, holding 'a beam
of bright light' into dark comers of the
world," said Lt. Col. Sue Grumbach, 325th
Civil Engineer Squadron commander.
Maj. Camp gives her son a shadow

Maj. Cynthia Camp, the sergeant's mother and Air Force Reserve
315th Air Medical Evacuation Squadron director of operations
in Charleston AFB, S.C., pins the Bronze Star Medal on Staff Sgt.
Jonathan Morrison, 325th Civil Engineering Squadron explosive
ordnance disposal craftsman Friday morning.
Sergeant Morrison was deployed
with the 506th Air Expeditionary
Group, 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing,
Kirkuk Regional Air Base, Iraq from
March 4, 2006 to August 19, 2006
during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Throughout his time in Iraq,
Sergeant Morrison contributed to the
recovery and destruction of 40,000
pieces of ordnance, starving the
enemy of the main explosive charge
utilized in roadside bombs, according
to the citation.
"I'm terrified of his job, but thankful
and supportive because he makes it
possible for other mothers and sons
to come home from Iraq," said Maj.
Cynthia B. Camp, the sergeant's mother
and Air Force Reserve 315th Air
Medical Evacuation Squadron director
of operations in Charleston AFB, S.C.
Sergeant Morrison's mother pinned
the Bronze Star on her son during the
formal military ceremony Friday.
"Like mother, like son," said Major
"My family and myself-- we have
always put others before ourselves,"
said Sergeant Morrison.
Major Camp, who has been in
the service for more than 20 years,
received her Bronze Star in 2003 for
her actions while deployed in support
of Operations Iraqi Freedom and

her father's Bronze Star to Sergeant Morrison
