"In the early days of the 2003 invasion of Iraq, then-Capt. Gregory Thornton braved a sandstorm and “an ever-increasing hailstorm of anti-aircraft fire” to carve a path for the 3rd Infantry Division’s 2nd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment over the Tigris River and on toward Baghdad. Thorton took out three T-72 tanks, six armored personnel carriers, and several utility vehicles, earning a Silver Star in the process. “Captain Thornton repeatedly maneuvered his aircraft to within 3,000 feet of enemy forces to bring his 30-millimeter Gatling gun to bear,” his Silver Star citation reads. “This courageous and aggressive attack, while under withering fire and in poor weather, along with Captain Thornton’s superior flying skills and true attack pilot grit, allowed the Task Force and Armor Battalion to successfully accomplish their objective linking up with coalition forces completing the 360-degree encirclement of Baghdad.”
