Today marks the first day of African American History Month.

Although there's more work to do, many Airmen have walked, so others may run. This month we will recognize some of those trailblazers and events that have paved the way for us all.

Recognizing extraordinary heroism

Secretary of the Air Force Barbara Barrett will present the Air Force Cross to Staff Sgt. Alaxey Germanovich, a Special Tactics combat controller, during a ceremony today at 11:30 a.m. MST at Cannon Air Force Base, New Mexico.

On April 8, 2017, Germanovich was attached to a team of Army special forces and Afghan commandos while on a mission to clear a well-fortified valley in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan, supporting Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. During an enemy ambush, Germanovich repeatedly exposed himself to sniper and machine-gun fire while directing numerous dangerously-close airstrikes from an Air Force Special Operations Command AC-130 gunship within 35 meters of his position.
