The Iron Mike Pin and Star Awards are presented quarterly. The awards serve to recognize members of the Fort Bragg community who have volunteered their time to provide support to units and Families at Fort Bragg.
Iron Mike pins and Stars are awarded to individuals who have among other things volunteered for a minimum number of hours during a specific designated quarter.
The most recent awards ceremony was held Jan. 31 during which over 40 Fort Bragg volunteers were recognized.
