History made with CSAF presentation of service’s top valor medal
The Hurlburt Field Honor Guard present the colors during a dual Air Force Cross ceremony at Hurlburt Field, Fla., April 20, 2017. For the first time in Air Force history, two Airmen were simultaneously awarded the service’s highest medal for valorous action in combat. Master Sgt. (Ret.) Keary Miller, a retired Special Tactics pararescueman from the Air National Guard’s 123rd Special Tactics Squadron, and Chris Baradat, a combat controller since separated, both received Silver Star medals for their actions in combat, which were upgraded after a service-wide review.
