    Is Awarded To

    Warrant Officer 1 Gavin Abbassi

    For exceptional skill and extraordinary heroism while serving as Buffalo-1 (UH-60M) pilot in the 7th Cavalry Regiment during Operations near Eponia, Sahrani on 23NOV19. While maintaining his orbit above the AO, Buffalo flight received accurate enemy fire from truck-mounted anti-air and from enemy small arms. On multiple occasions, Warrant Officer 1 Gavin Abbassi directed his door gunner and the crew of Buffalo-2 to engage an enemy force several times larger than friendly elements with an overwhelming and aggressive intent such that enemy forces never threatened to overrun the friendly-held compound. Warrant Officer 1 Gavin Abbassi's leadership was critical to Buffalo flight's ability to provide such critical supporting fire, during which the Flight Leader placed his own airframe at higher risk by maintaining overhead overwatch during a close air support engagement while his wingman returned to base for maintenance. During this time, Buffalo-1 continued to provide life-saving support despite being the major focus of the enemies' fire, which otherwise would have left the friendly infantry elements without 360° security and recon while being overrun by enemy infantry squads and armor from multiple directions. Additionally, Warrant Officer 1 Gavin Abbassi completed all these aspects while flying his airframe in such a manner that minimized risk to his crew and elevated his ability to stay on station and provide his gunner the best opportunity to engage the enemy. Warrant Officer 1 Gavin Abbassi's intrepidity, skill, and quick thinking are in keeping with the highest traditions of the military forces of the United States and reflect great credit upon himself and the 7th Cavalry Regiment.
