In memory of Staff Sergeant Michael Ollis.
SSG Ollis was a Non-Commissioned Officer in B Company 2-22 IN. On August 28, 2013, an attack on Forward Operating Base Ghazni in Afghanistan took place involving grenades, mortars, rockets, and a 3,000-pound bomb. Ollis lost his life after heroically shielding Polish Army Lieutenant Karol Cierpica from a suicide bomber, which took place after the two soldiers stood side-by-side and defended the base armed with only their rifles. SSG Ollis incapacitated the insurgent, but the vest detonated and mortally wounded him.
