22 STS Medals Ceremony

Thirteen medals were presented to 11 combat controllers during a ceremony April 29 at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., presided over by the Chief of Staff of the Air Force. The Chief of Staff of the United States Air Force, Gen. Norton A. Schwartz, and the 11 medal recipients take a moment to recognize Col. (ret.) Joe Jackson. Colonel Jackson was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions in Vietnam in 1968, when he risked his life to ensure no combat controllers were left behind. (U.S. Air Force photo/Abner Guzman)
