The Air Force Achievement Medal recently was awarded to Airman First Class Joshua Roatch. Roatch distinguished himself by outstanding achievement as a security response member,of the 341st Missile Squadron at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana. While on patrol to perform a site assessment on one of Malmstrom’s missile launch facilities, Roatch and his partner discovered a mangled vehicle that was overturned. Roatch and Sgt. Matt Meade, being the first responders, assessed the accident and established, erected and attained all necessary first aid and first response for the survival and successful recovery of Greg Herman of Hilger, Mont. “The doctors tell me that if the Air Force guys would not have come along and provided the medical attention they did, I would not be here today,” Herman said.
