"In the predawn hours of March 4, 2002, just below the 10,000-foot peak of a mountain in eastern Afghanistan, a fierce battle raged. Outnumbered by Al Qaeda fighters, Air Force Combat Controller John Chapman and a handful of SEAL Team Six men struggled to take the summit in a desperate bid to find a lost teammate. Chapman, leading the charge, was gravely wounded in the initial assault. His SEAL leader believing he was dead ordered a retreat." - from Alone at Dawn. Last year the Air Force awarded Master Sgt. John Chapman the Medal of Honor. Listen in as Mr. Dan Schilling, former air combat controller and author of Alone at Dawn, talks about what Air Combat Controllers bring to the fight.
