The CH-47 Chinook crews attached to B Co, 3-126 Aviation stand together following their Welcome Home Ceremony. This was the first time they were back together since returning from deployment in November.
On December 28, Pfc. Emmanuel Mensah saved the lives of four people in a massive apartment fire in the Bronx. On his fourth trip into the building he didn't come out.
His heroic actions are deserving of the highest possible recognition. Today we presented his family with the Soldier's Medal, the Army's top award for valor outside of combat, and the New York State Medal for Valor, the state's highest military award.
Mensah enlisted in December 2016 as a permanent legal resident. He became a naturalized United States Citizen shortly before completing his AIT training, and was slated to drill in the 107th Military Police Company as a wheeled vehicle mechanic.
