原文:

 Chief Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician Matthew O'Connor, a member of EOD Mobile Unit 11, received the Silver Star last Thursday for repeatedly braving enemy fire in an area filled with IEDs to save his teammates. The ceremony was held at Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, where Vice Adm. Scott Conn, commander of Third Fleet, presented O'Connor with the award.

 'With utter disregard for his own safety, Chief O'Connor advanced forward, carried his wounded teammate to cover, and then rendered lifesaving medical treatment while coordinating suppressive fire. By his bold initiative, undaunted courage and total dedication to duty, Chief O'Connor reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service,' the citation states.

 歐康納組長是未爆彈處理技術士,隸屬第11未爆彈處理機動隊。他在上週四獲頒銀星勳章,以表彰他數度於敵火下,深入滿布即製爆裂物的險地,營救隊友的英勇行徑。表揚典禮在聖地牙哥洛瑪岬海軍基地舉行,由第3艦隊指揮官康恩中將頒贈勳獎。

 褒掦令上明述,歐康納全然不顧個人安危,挺身而出,扛著受傷隊友尋求掩護,同時協調制壓射擊並施予傷患急救醫療措施。憑藉著果敢主動、英勇無懼及克盡職責的精神,歐康納為自己贏得殊榮,也維繫了美國海軍的最高傳統。
