DynCorp Employees Receive Chairman’s Valor Awards; John Gastright Comments

DyncorpDynCorp International has awarded its highest recognition to four team members that support the company’s police mentorship program in Afghanistan.

Company executives presented the Chairman’s Valor Award to David Holmes, David Lyons, Harry William Harp Jr. and Lemuel Rivera-Gonzalez at a ceremony in Afghanistan, the company said Monday.

Holmes, Lyons, Harp and Rivera-Gonzalez serve as embedded police mentors who help train and mentor police personnel in the country for the Afghanistan Ministry of Interior and Afghan National Police Program.

“Our civilian police advisers are deployed around the world in support of international peacekeeping operations, and help train and mentor police forces in countries emerging from conflict,” said John Gastright, DynCorp vice president of government relations.

Maj. Gen. Kenneth Dahl, U.S. Forces Afghanistan deputy commanding general for support, delivered a keynote address at the awards ceremony.

Harp was recognized for helping care and transport wounded coalition members and helped save a U.S. soldier’s life in one instance, according to DynCorp.

Holmes helped coordinate transportation and first aid in the country and helped save the lives of three U.S. soldiers, the company said.

Lyons and Rivera-Gonzalez helped Afghan and U.S. soldiers leave an area that came under insurgent fire, DynCorp said.
