Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton A. Schwartz will award Capt. Barry F. Crawford Jr., shown here, the Air Force Cross—the second highest honor for valor in combat, behind only the Medal of Honor—during a Pentagon ceremony, April 12, 2012. The medal recognizes Crawford's heroic actions in Laghman Province, Afghanistan, on May 4, 2010. Crawford will become the fifth Air Force special operator to receive the Air Force Cross since Sept. 11, 2001, and only the third living recipient to receive the award during that same time period.Air Force courtesy photo
