MINOT AIR FORCE BASE, N.D. -- Maj. Gen. Roger W. Burg, 20th Air Force commander, presents Staff Sgt. Gabriel T. Masterson, 791st Missile Security Forces Squadron support flight chief, with the Air Force Combat Action Medal here Jan 12. General Burg was here for a wing visit and to support an orientation visit of Senate staff members from states involved with ICBM bases. Sergeant Masterson received the medal when he was deployed to Balad Air Base, Iraq, attached to Task Force 1041 as a turret gunner on an offensive patrol off base. His patrol was ambushed by two improvised explosive device attacks within four hours where he successfully defended against hostile enemy forces. The principal eligibility criterion to receive the medal is that the individual must have been under direct and hostile fire while operating in unsecured space (outside the defended perimeter), or physically engaging hostile forces with direct and lethal fire.
