Master Sgt. Joshua Whitty, team sergeant, 1st Battalion, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), shakes the hand of Romanian Lt. Dorina Petre, after presenting her the U.S. Bronze Star medal citation on behalf of her husband, Maj. Marcel Petre, who was killed in Afghanistan while assigned as the Detachment Commander for Romanian Special Forces Operational Detachment- Alpha 012. The ceremony, which took place Sept. 2 in Tirgu Mares, Romania, honored Petre’s legacy and the relationship of U.S. and Romanian Special Operations Forces who fought and serve together in support of the NATO International Security Assistance Force. Whitty served alongside Petre in Afghanistan and was with him when he was killed in action on April 3, 2009.
