Wall of Valor:
First Lieutenant David H. Auyer distinguished himself by extraordinary achievement while participating in aerial flight as F4-E Aircraft Commander over Southeast Asia on 25 September 1972. On that date, Lieutenant Auyer flew in support of friendly forces attacking a known heavily defended enemy location and storage area. Despite intense accurate antiaircraft fire, Lieutenant Auyer, in multiple passes, delivered his ordnance precisely on target destroying three fortified fighting positions, yielding several secondary explosions, and allowing friendly forces to occupy the area. The professional competence, aerial skill, and devotion to duty displayed by Lieutenant Auyer reflects great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
