Airmen Receives Bronze Star

CMSgt. James Tauscher, currently assigned to the 15th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron at Hickam AFB, Hawaii, received a Bronze Star medal last year for his actions as a combat aviation advisor to the Coalition Air Forces Transition Team in Iraq. During a deployment of more than one year, Tauscher led more than 140 coalition C-130 maintenance technicians who supported units that transported key Iraqi government and military officials. Tauscher received the medal during a ceremony at Hickam on May 8, 2008. We just became aware of Tauscher’s award. It’s never too late to give someone proper recognition.
