ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — An airman enlisted in the Georgia Air National Guard is being awarded a medal for showing extraordinary leadership in Afghanistan.

The National Guard said Senior Master Sgt. James Love is scheduled to receive the Bronze Star during a ceremony Friday at Robins Air Force Base. He will be presented the award by Maj. Gen. Jim Butterworth, the Georgia National Guard’s top commander.

Military officials said Love was nominated for the medal for his service in Afghanistan with the 116th Civil Engineering Squadron. While deployed, Love’s team helped enhance security on Afghanistan’s Highway 1 and completed 174 construction projects for coalition forces valued at $40 million.

The Georgia National Guard said Love is the fifth member of the 116th Civil Engineering Squadron to be awarded the Bronze Star since 2010.
