Subject: 50 Years after Vietnam action, SSgt Kays receives Air Force Commendation Medal

Gents and Ladies,

Fifty years and one month after SSgt Jackie Kays was medically discharged from the Air Force, following his heroic and career-ending rescuing of crewmembers from a crash landing short of Da Nang AB's runway, and in the world's largest minefield (21 Nov 1965), Jackie received the Air Force Commendation Medal for his actions.

Jackie Kays reported that on 20 Dec 2015, his doorbell rang and a representative of Congressman Sam Graves presented him a letter and certificate awarding him the AFCM.

Please read Jackie Kays' letter, Congressman Graves' letter, and the Air Force Commendation citation signed by Maj Gen B. Poore, at:
