Chief Warrant Officer 3 Jason Lacrosse, an instructor pilot with the Falcon team at U.S. Army Europe's Joint Multinational Readiness Center in Hohenfels, Germany, poses with German soldiers at the Berlin Air Show, Sept. 11. Three of the German soldiers were among a group of Bundeswehr troops rescued by Lacrosse and fellow Soldiers in Afghanistan in April 2010, and the fourth was a member of the Joint Tactical Air Command involved in that operation. In 2010 the Americans who took part in the rescue were honored with the Bundeswehr's highest award for a single act of valor, and Lacrosse and one of his colleagues were honored once more during this year's air show.
