Thanks for the ping. Just getting shot down doesn’t qualify for a Silver Star, but perhaps courage in captivity does.

I was in basic training at Lackland when this incident went down. We had been there for about four weeks and still had no clue what was happening. Then all the officers and NCOs were running around like chickens with their heads cut off. They were convinced that we (minus the recruits) would all be shipping out for points unknown that very evening.
