WASHINGTON — Three FBI agents wounded during a 2008 bombing in Pakistan were among  38 FBI and other law enforcement people awarded honorary FBI medals by the director Robert S. Mueller III during a standing- room only ceremony at headquarters Friday.

In all, Mueller presented 42 honorary FBI medals to the 38 people that included the FBI Star, the FBI Medal for Meritorious Achievement, the FBI Shield of Bravery, and the FBI Medal of Valor.

The FBI said the awards recognized “exceptional acts by both FBI and other law enforcement personnel working with the FBI, across the country and around the world.”

“These men and women are not the kind to call attention to their individual acts of heroism, but those brave and courageous acts deserve our attention and our gratitude,” Mueller said. “Today we stand here and formally recognize them with the FBI’s highest honors.”

The three agents in Pakistan who were given awards included Bruce Bennett, Tricia Gibbs and Raymond Pitesky.
