Heck, we here at B5 even missed it….almost.

CPT Brian Erickson received the Distinguished Flying Cross two weeks ago, for action in Afghanistan against an enemy who had pinned down a German Reconstruction Team.  Good flying CPT Erickson.

On Oct. 16, 2006, Erickson and a wingman were called in to help six German soldiers pinned down by insurgents firing rockets, machine guns and small-arms.

As Captain Erickson flew his A-10 deep into the moonless valley, the only light on the ground was from insurgent weapons-fire,” the Air Force reported.

And then there’s this one.
