The military has honored a local Marine for exemplary service in Afghanistan.

Sergeant major Larry Harrington was awarded the Bronze Star at a ceremony aboard Cherry Point on Monday. The Bronze Star is the military's fifth-highest combat decoration.

He deployed to Afghanistan from July 2011 to February 2012.

The Corps says Harrington also strengthened relations with Afghan National Security Force partners, contributing to a greater team effort.
