CPT Dan Kearney of Battle Company, 2-503rd PIR receives MacArthur Leadership Award

"The American Soldier is America's greatest asset."

Interview with CPT Dan Kearney, Commander of Battle Company, 2-503rd PIR, 173rd ABCT. Kearney is one of a handful of Soldiers selected this year to receive the Douglas MacArthur Leadership Award for his actions in the Korengal Valley of Afghanistan.

The award recognizes company grade officers who demonstrate the ideals for which General MacArthur stood - duty, honor, country.

You may remember CPT Kearney and Battle Company from the great Vanity Fair article earlier this year (as well as the more recent and not-so-great NYT article).
