This 39-Year-Old Woman Enlisted Five Years Ago And Is Already An American Hero

When Army Sgt. Julia Bringloe received the Distinguished Flying Cross during a Manhattan ceremony last week it wasn’t for any one particular thing that she had done.

Bringloe, 39, received the honor for dozens of courageous acts performed during a 60-hour mission where she and her medevac crew rescued 14 wounded soldiers.

Erik German from The Daily talked to Bringloe and her helicopter crew about Operation Hammerdown and the nearly three days they spent flying into, hovering above, and dropping in, to extreme danger and live combat.
