Vice President's Remarks at a Presentation of the Distinguished Service Cross to Dr. Bernard Bail
Vice President Dick Cheney presents the Distinguished Service Cross to Lieutenant Bernard W. Bail in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, Friday, February 24, 2006. The Distinguished Service Cross is awarded to a person who while serving in any capacity with the U.S. Army distinguished himself or herself by extraordinary heroism. After Lt. Bail’s aircraft took heavy anti-aircraft fire that killed the pilot and wounded other crew members over the English Channel on June 5, 1944, Lt. Bail displayed such acts of valor and ultimately prevented the aircraft, loaded with a full ordnance, from crashing into an English village. White House photo by David Bohrer
