Established on May 11, 1942. The Air Medal is awarded to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States who subsequent to September 8, 1939, shall have distinguished himself
by meritorious achievement while participating in aerial flight. It was given for combat or non-combat action, and conferred in recognition
of single acts of heroism or merit for operational activities against an armed enemy.
Additionally, it is given for meritorious services, or for sustained distinction
in the performance of duties involving regular and frequent participation in aerial flight.
Many Delta Raiders, including myself, were awarded the Air Medal.
How, one might ask,
could grunts in an Infantry Rifle Company win an Air Medal?
