Fort Campbell will dedicate a building that houses an explosive ordnance disposal unit in honor of a former company commander who was killed in Afghanistan.

The headquarters building of the 184th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Battalion will be dedicated on Friday in honor of Capt. Jason McMahon.

McMahon was serving as the company commander for the 744th Explosive Ordnance Disposal Company in 2010 in Afghanistan. On Sept. 5, 2010, he and his soldiers were attacked in Laghman province and he exposed himself to enemy fire to direct his soldiers and give them cover during the attack.

He was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for his actions.
