AROUND THE AIR FORCE. THE MEDAL OF HONOR IS THE
HIGHEST AWARD FOR HEROISM IN MILITARY ACTION THE
NATION CAN BESTOW ON A MEMBER OF ITS
ARMED FORCES. IN A WHITE HOUSE CEREMONY

SPECIAL TACTICS COMBAT CONTROLLER WAS
POSTHUMOUSLY AWARDED THE MEDAL OF HONOR IN
RECOGNITION FOR HIS HEROISM DURING THE
BATTLE OF TAK-ERR GAR, AFGHANISTAN, IN
MARCH OF 2002. PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP
PRESENTED THE MEDAL TO SERGEANT CHAPMAN’S
WIFE, VALERIE NESSEL. DURING HIS REMARKS,
PRESIDENT TRUMP REFLECTED ON THE LIFE OF SERGEANT
CHAPMAN, AND HOW IT SHAPED HIM AS AN AIRMAN. IN HIS HIGH SCHOOL
YEARBOOK JOHN QUOTED THESE WORDS: “GIVE YOURSELF,
BEFORE TAKING OF SOMEONE ELSE.” VERY FARSIGHTED. JOHN LIVED BY THAT
MOTTO EVERY, SINGLE DAY. EVERYBODY THAT KNEW HIM
SAID THAT’S THE WAY HE LIVED. IN THIS FINAL ACT OF
SUPREME COURAGE, JOHN GAVE HIS LIFE FOR HIS
FELLOW WARRIORS. THROUGH HIS EXTRAORDINARY
SACRIFICE JOHN HELPED SAVE MORE THAN 20 AMERICAN
SERVICEMEMBERS, SOME OF WHOM ARE HERE TODAY.” CHAPMAN WAS THE 19TH
AIRMAN TO BE AWARDED THE MEDAL OF HONOR SINCE THE
DEPARTMENT OF THE AIR FORCE WAS ESTABLISHED IN
1947 AND THE FIRST SPECIAL TACTICS AIRMAN TO
RECIEVE THE MEDAL. LIEUTENANT GENERAL

HER THE FIRST RESERVE AIRMAN TO ACHIEVE
THAT RANK. SHE’S ALSO BEEN TAPPED
