Special Tactics Airmen earn Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart

9/28/2012 - Pope Field, N.C. -- When the critical moment came there was courage.

There was courage from an Airman who moved into the line of fire to retrieve bodies of fallen Afghan commandos.

Another Airman risked sniper fire to call in air support. One Airman continued to fight despite shrapnel wounds from a hand grenade.

Three Air Force Special Operations Command combat controllers from the 21 Special Tactics Squadron were recognized for actions downrange in a medals ceremony at Pope Field, N.C., Sept. 25.
