    HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. — Four soldiers assigned to 5th Special Forces Group received the Silver Star Medal Wednesday for gallantry and heroism in a prolonged battle that took place nearly 10 months ago.

    During a midmorning ceremony at the James E. Bruce Convention Center, the awards were given to Master Sgt. Petter Jacobson, Master Sgt. Sean Kirkwood, Master Sgt. Raymond Lancey and Staff Sgt. Gregory Keller.

    In a Jan. 28 fight near the southern Iraqi city of Najaf, the Green Berets went to the assistance of Iraqi soldiers and police who had taken multiple losses quickly when they were engaged by an overwhelming number of heavily armed fighters.
