In 2019 Staff Sgt. Michael Rogers, an Air Force pararescueman, together with the Army Special Forces team was in Afghanistan to secure a Taliban ammunition dump in the country. While on a mission, a massive blast happened, injuring the other soldiers with him. As a pararescueman, Rogers is trained to work in such a situation; thus, he moved fast and treated his teammates. It was because of him that his teammates made the explosion alive. Rogers was awarded the 2021 Air Force Sergeants Association Pitsenbarger Award for his heroic actions that night.
