"Specialist Carl Trice was a Paratrooper who enlisted in a time of persistent war and for that we are grateful." said Lt. Col. Kevin Key, Commander of Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division, the "Gladius" battalion.

"Carl volunteered three times: once to selflessly serve his country, then to attend airborne school, and finally to do something inherently dangerous: serve on airborne status. In this endeavor, he was in elite company. We are forever grateful for his service to the 82nd Airborne Division and the Gladius Battalion."

Trice joined the Army in February 2014 and, following Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training, was assigned to the 82nd Airborne Division in September 2014.

His awards and decorations include the Army Achievement Medal, the Army Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, and the Parachutist Badge.
