Local Hero Awarded Bronze Star
Air Force Tech Sgt. Matt Bolduc, from Oakland, ME, is a counterintelligence special agent. He enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 2001, just two days later on Sept. 11, a terrorist attack on our shores led to the war on terror.
Bolduc was quickly deployed to take part in military operations in Iraq. Since then, he also has completed two deployments in Afghanistan. He is currently a technical sergeant in the Air Force, working as a counterintelligence special agent at Aviano Air Base in Italy.
Earlier this month, he was awarded a Bronze Star for his success at neutralizing a troubling Taliban attack strategy against allied coalition forces in Afghanistan. The Bronze Star is the military’s fourth-highest honor.
