The U.S. Air Force has released aerial video of Sgt.
Technical Sergeant John Chapman and a group of Navy SEALs “charged into enemy fire through harrowing conditions,” secured a bunker, and slew the Al Qaeda militants occupying it.
Britt K. Slabinski, retired member of SEAL Team 6, was in command.
After receiving a Medal of Honor in May, Slabinski credited “so many others” who “followed me without hesitation” in the bloody 14-hour battle.
President Trump will echo these sentiments by posthumously awarding Chapman the Medal of Honor on August 22, making Chapman the first airman to receive it since the Vietnam War.
