Airmen and soldiers salute during the National Anthem at a Silver Star Medal presentation ceremony at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash., Nov. 16, 2016. The Silve Star Medal was presented to Staff Sgt. Keaton Thiem, a combat controller with the 22nd Special Tactics Squadron, for using air power to ensure the safety of his 100-plus man SOF element during a 14-hour firefight with no regard for his own personal safety, while deployed with U.S. Army Special Operations Forces in Afghanistan.
