Army Staff Sgt. Jeremy Lance Czarnik has graduated from Army Special Forces training.

During the intense 18-month training regime, Czarnik learned foreign language and combat medic skills at Fort Bragg, N.C., earning him his green beret.

Czarnik has been in the Army since 2002, and has already completed one tour of Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan. During his second tour in Afghanistan, he earned  a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star for his composure under enemy fire.

The soldier will now be stationed at Fort Lewis with the 1st Special Forces Group. He is the son of Matt Czarnik of Freeland, and Tammy Brown (Workman), formerly of Langley.
