Nice to wake up and read in the morning news that a USAF airman, unarmed, was part of an ad hoc team that took down a jihadist armed with an AK, a knife, and a pistol. Beat the idiot senseless! Makes my day!

Oughta get the Airman’s Medal, at least!
Criteria for award: One of several Air Force awards established by Congress on July 6, 1960, takes the place of the Soldier’s Medal for Air Force personnel. It is awarded to any member of the Armed Forces of the United States or of a friendly nation who, while serving in any capacity with the United States Air Force after the date of the award’s authorization, shall have distinguished himself or herself by a heroic act, usually at the voluntary risk of his or her life but not involving actual combat.
I’d say he pretty much fits the criteria.
You make us proud, kid!
