Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall quote
Retired Lt. Col. Bruce Crandall, describing the action in Vietnam for which he was awarded the Medal of Honor Feb. 26.

That was the first real test of our helicopters to resupply and rescue guys in that way. Normally we'd never fly that close to the fight, and we didn't like to fly in the dark. But when it turned as hot as it did, we just kept going into the night.
