Pictured from left to right are Col. Samuel C. Mahaney, 452d AMW commander, Master Sgt. Jim Lambert, 729th AS and Chief Master Sgt. Ericka Kelly, 452 AMW command chief. Lambert was awarded the Bronze Star medal with Valor for heroism while engaged in ground operations against the enemy at Bagram Air Field, Afghanistan, Aug. 20, 2011. He is recognized particularly for his response to a fire that was caused by attacking insurgents. As a civilian firefighter, he drew upon his expertise and proposed a superior course of action to the on-scene commander. He voluntarily entered into a burning compound to distribute and employ heavy equipment resources to contain the blaze. While doing so, he spotted a crate of grenades that were about to be engulfed by flames and removed them before their certain explosion — ultimately ensuring the safety of more than 50 emergency responders that would have been in that area. His heroic actions and unselfish dedication to duty reflected great credit upon himself and the U.S. Air Force.
