Norton Schwartz presented two Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor medals and the Bronze Star to Col. Christopher Barnett (left), and two Distinguished Flying Cross with Valor medals to Maj. John Creel (right) during a ceremony in the Pentagon on May 18, 2012.

Both officers received the medals for two separate battles in Afghanistan. On April 4, 2009, Barnett and Creel flew their HH-60G Pave Hawk helicopter through multiple fire fights and a blinding sandstorm to save the lives of more than 40 Special Forces Soldiers and an Afghan National Army member near Kajaki, Afghanistan.

Several missions later, Barnett and Creel were faced with similar circumstances near Marjeh, Afghanistan, on May 19, 2009, when they flew into a Taliban stronghold three times to rescue injured Soldiers while also working with air controllers on the ground to eliminate enemy positions.
