82nd Training Wing Public Affairs

Hershel “Woody” Williams, Medal of Honor recipient, speaks to Airman at Sheppard Air Force Base, Texas, Feb. 19, 2016. Williams took a detour from the Iwo Jima reunion to visit with Airmen and speak about their oath and every day assumptions made about today’s service members. Williams was a Marine Corps corporal Feb. 21, 1945, when he used a flame thrower to clear Japanese fighting positions while U.S. forces were taking the island of Iwo Jima off the coast of Japan.
