Jack N. Dole

The President of the United States takes great pleasure in presenting the Distinguished Flying Cross to Captain Jack N. Dole for extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight as C-123B Pilot at Minh Thanh airfield, Republic of Vietnam on 10 April 1967. On that date, Captain Dole was flying a combat support mission against unfriendly ground forces. Flying four sorties into Minh Thanh, a small forward assault strip, he successfully delivered vitally needed supplies under hazardous conditions of night weather and sniper fire. The professional competence, aerial skill, and devotion to duty displayed by Captain Dole reflect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
