Nacey Kent Jr

Sergeant Nacey Kent Jr, distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in connection with military operations against an opposing armed force for extraordinary heroism in military operations against an opposing armed force as an AC-47 Flight Engineer near Pleiku, Republic of Vietnam on 5 May 1968. On that date, Sergeant Kent and the AC-47 crew were defending Pleiku Air Base against a hostile mortar and rocket attack when their aircraft was critically damaged by a hostile projectile. Although Sergeant Kent's leg was broken in the ensuing crash, he helped the enlisted crew to evacuate, reentered the burning aircraft to carry the seriously wounded navigator to safety, and then entered the aircraft again to aid the other crew members and to fight the fire. Through his extraordinary heroism, superb airmanship, and aggressiveness, Sergeant Kent reflected the highest credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
