Air Force technical sergeant John A Chapman receives Medal of Honor.
HEROISM HONORED – FIRST AIR FORCE MEDAL OF HONOR since the Vietnam War. President Trump presented the Medal of Honor to a fallen hero, Technical Sergeant John A. Chapman of the United States Air Force, who died serving in Afghanistan 16 years ago. Sergeant Chapman is the first member of the U.S. Air Force to receive the Medal of Honor since the Vietnam War.
On March 4, 2002, on Takur Ghar mountain in Afghanistan, Sergeant Chapman charged into enemy fire through harrowing conditions, seized an enemy bunker, and killed its enemy occupants. Despite severe wounds, he continued to fight relentlessly, sustaining a violent engagement with multiple enemy personnel before paying the ultimate sacrifice. Sergeant Chapman’s heroic actions, at the cost of his life, are credited with saving the lives of his teammates. INFO @MAIL.WHITEHOUSE.GOV
