Red Star,3774119,Sapper,181st Motorised Infantry Regiment,Afghanistan 1986

Unfortunately, I do not have a translation of the full recommendation, just the "core". I have the original in Russian, though.

I also have his full group.

Sergeant Oleg Alexandrovich Baklan, Sapper, assistant platoon commander, 181st Motorized Infantry Regiment, 108th Motorized Division, 40th Army, Turkestan Military District.

[B]Red Star # 3774119, by order of Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR from 21 March 1986

Red Star Recommendation

In Democratic Republic of Afghanistan since March 1984. During this time he took part in ten large-scale mission aimed at destruction of rebel bands. Personally cleared and destroyed 238 of enemy IEDs. While doing that he showed personal courage, bravery and sensible initiative.

On October 4, 1985 while being the head of weapon hideout search group Sgt. Baklan was working on area demining and found a sizeable enemy weapon depot with large amount of munitions and medical supplies. The most valuable trophies captured in that hideout were two anti-aircraft guns and one recoilless rifle.

For personal bravery and courage well beyond the call of duty Sgt Baklan deserves to be awarded with order of the Red Star.

Sounds very modern?

Sure does, but for one small detail: the origin of the seized equipment at that time... :rolleyes:

Marc

PS: would have been nice to have a look at the actual award...
