“An airman traveling from Japan to the U.S. to receive a prestigious military honor racked up one more act of bravery while in transit. Tech. Sgt. Ken O'Brien was on his way to Dallas from Okinawa when he saw a 1-year-old baby choking, jumped into action, and saved the child’s life.”

“O'Brien, an Indiana native, was flying to the states to receive one of only 12 Outstanding Airman of the Year awards. He was being given the honor after a valiant year in which he served on President Trump’s security detail during his summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, saved a civilian’s life by pulling them from a burning car in South Korea, and played an "instrumental role” in rescuing trapped children during the 2018 cave rescue mission in Thailand.“
