As technology develops, so too does insight into areas of life never before seen except by firsthand experience. But, now, Americans are able to see the heroic acts of those willing to sacrifice their lives for us on a daily basis thanks to drone technology. In a historic first, the actions of a Medal of Honor recipient have caught on camera. 

As reported by Task and Purpose, Air Force Technical Sgt. John Chapman's stunning bravery is now available for the public to see because "hovering over [Chapman] was a CIA predator drone and other surveillance asset."

Via Task and Purpose

Chapman, an Air Force combat controller, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor in August 2018 for his bravery during the 2002 Battle of Takur Ghar in Afghanistan, in which he charged enemy bunkers and exposed himself to blistering fire while trying to rescue a fallen comrade.
