Thomas "Patrick" Payne's Medal of Honor Story

Then-Sgt. 1st Class Thomas "Patrick" Payne served as an assistant team leader deployed to Iraq as part of a Special Operations Joint Task Force in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. On October 22, 2015, his task force was given a mission to rescue over 70 Iraqi hostages being held by ISIS in a prison compound in the northern town of Hawija.

For his conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty, U.S. Army Sgt. Maj. Thomas P. Payne was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Donald Trump on September 11, 2020.
