Description
 
Since 1918 more than 100 American aviators (pilots & crew) from all military services have received America's highest military decoration for “distinguishing themselves by conspicuous gallantry & courage at risk of their own lives, above & beyond the call of duty.” Here are the incredibly valiant & inspiring stories behind the medals & in many cases sets the “official record” straight. These accounts feature some of the most famous airmen in history -- Frank Luke Jr., Jimmy Doolittle, Joe Foss, David McCampbell, Leo Thorsness, & Patrick Brady, to name a few -- & lesser-known fliers who finally get the recognition they deserve. Half of the medal winners died earning it; most of the survivors consider themselves lucky just to be alive. Photos.
