Charles D Boal

The President of the United States takes great pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to first Lieutenant Charles D. Boal for extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight as an EC-47 Aircraft Commander in Southeast Asia on 10 October 1970. On this date, Lieutenant Boal flew an extremely hazardous mission through adverse weather conditions and the constant threat of hostile fire for the purpose of collecting intelligence information vital to the success of ground operations. The professional competence, aerial skill, and devotion to duty displayed by Lieutenant Boal reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
