Medal of Military Valour

On May 16, 2007, Sergeant Killam, then Master Corporal, repeatedly exposed himself to lethal enemy fire during an ambush launched by insurgents in Sangsar, Afghanistan. Although separated from his platoon, he identified enemy positions and issued clear orders that enabled his section to engage the enemy. Inspired by his leadership, Sergeant Killam’s troops fought back a numerically superior enemy with no casualties to his section.
