Air Force, 20+ Years
Gautier native recognized for valor in Iraq A Gautier native recently received the Bronze Star for Valor for his actions during the opening days of the second Iraqi war in March and April 2003. Air Force Master Sgt. James Rigney Jr. was a tactical air control close-air support specialist attached to the 2nd Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry Division during the division's drive to capture Baghdad. Rigney helped control Air Force fighters and bombers making bombing and strafing runs close to American troops. He made sure pilots knew where American and Iraqi troops were before making their run to avoid friendly fire incidents. The Bronze Star citation says that while Rigney controlled the movements of planes and pilots, hefrequently engaged enemy personnel with his personal weapon, provided critical intelligence updates, and prevented his battalion from falling into several ambushes--unquote. Rigney was responsible for the destruction of at least 10 vehicles, including an armored vehicle, three buildings occupied by Iraqi troops, and a number of Iraqi troops, according to the citation. 14 Jan 08
