South Dakota Native Earns Medal Of Valor

April 18, 2014, 5:07 PM

South Dakota Native Earns Medal Of Valor
BISMARCK, ND -

A native of Lemmon, South Dakota, has been honored for saving the lives of four soldiers in Afghanistan.

Military contractor Dave Jensen received the Secretary of Defense Medal of Valor during a recent ceremony at the Pentagon.

The Army says Jensen was serving as an operational adviser with the U.S. Army Asymmetric Warfare Group in September 2012 when a CH-47 helicopter he was aboard was hit by a rocket.

Jensen described his actions as "situational awareness and vigilance," saying his training and experience as a veteran took over.

He says he was almost sure the helicopter was hit by indirect fire or a rocket. He says he knew there was a problem, and he tried to fix it the best he could.
