Higgins (right) stand at attention as Lewis is awarded the Soldier's Medal for heroic actions taken in July 2010 while assigned as a Special Forces Qualification Course student. Higgins witnessed a catastrophic plane crash in Chapel Hill, N.C. and saved the life of the plane's co-pilot, applying tourniquets and staying with him until medical personnel could arrive.
