Century CI & US Army Sgt Chester Tolbert Awarded Medal for Combat

Century CI Correctional Officer & US Army Sgt Chester Tolbert who is currently assigned to a NATO Training Mission in Afghanistan was recently awarded a medal and badge for helping combat an insurgent attack in Kabul.

Tolbert helped defeat a multiphase attack in which insurgents used small-arms and improvised explosive devices to attack the British Council Building, a base located in a relatively upscale area of the country’s capital used for education and to help Afghanistan’s civilian community. Although no US service members were harmed, 12 people died in the attack.

Command Task Force Yankee Army Brig. Gen. John Hammond presented Tolbert with the Joint Service Achievement Medal and a combat action badge.
