Lt. Col. Alan McKewan, Commander of Joint Task Force-Bravo's Army Forces Battalion, presents a certificate of appreciation to Jose Adalberto Mejia for his actions in helping to assist at the scene of a vehicle accident, Soto Cano Air Base, Honduras, Dec. 16, 2013. On the evening of Dec. 11, 2013, Adalberto Mejia was driving a taxi with U.S. Air Force Capt. Allen Bear, U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Michael Batres, U.S. Army Staff Sgt. John Fowler and U.S. Army Sgt. Willie Price (pictured) riding as passengers when the men witnessed a vehicle striking a cow that had wandered onto the road. The vehicle flipped upside down and came to rest in a ditch. The five men came to the aid of the driver of the overturned vehicle, pulling him from the wreckage and then loading him into the taxi to transport him to receive medical treatment.
