1st Lt. David Williams: F-105 Wild Weasel EWO

Lt. David Williams flew 100 missions as a Wild Weasel electronic warfare officer (EWO) between June and December 1967. During an October 1967 mission near Hanoi, Williams showed extraordinary courage by guiding his pilot in an attack on a SAM site while his aircraft was hit and burning. With his aircraft still in flames, he assisted in initiating the rescue of a downed wingman in the target area. He then constantly provided positions as the pilot flew the crippled aircraft 300 miles to a skillful emergency landing. For his actions, he was awarded the Air Force Cross.
