Silver StarSilver Star - Global War on Terror - Navy

We have recorded 28 Navy recipients of the Silver Star during the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts, collectively known as the Global War on Terror.

NOTE: The 11 Navy Silver Star Recipients listed below include 3 Corpsman and 6 Navy Seals. Published reports indicate that as of March 2008, a total of 23 Navy SEALS have received Silver Stars in GWOT. No doubt some of these "missing 18" SEAL heroes remain classified awards, however we welcome information that does not compromise security on any of the SEAL recipients we have not yet identified.
