A deceased Moody Air Force airman will receive the Air Force's highest honor. Senior Airman Jason Cunningham was a para-rescueman whose chopper was shot down with a rocket-propelled grenade in Afghanistan.
Cunningham was hit by two bullets but continued treating others who were wounded. He died seven hours later.
The Air Force Cross is awarded for extraordinary heroism displayed by U. S. and foreign military personnel and civilians. The only higher award is the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Cunningham is the 22nd recipient of the Air Force Cross and only the second since 1975.
He was a New Mexico native who left behind a widow and two young children.
