Dedication and perseverance save lives.

The Distinguished Flying Cross was presented to Petty Officer 3rd Class Evan Staph (left of center and left) and the Air Medal was presented to Petty Officer 2nd Class Derrick P. Suba (center and right) at Air Station Cape Cod for their heroic actions in February 2015 during a lifesaving rescue mission south of Nantucket. 

During the rescue, Staph and Suba, members of a Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter aircrew, navigated through low visibility and near hurricane force winds to save two men aboard a sailboat disabled and adrift in 25 foot waves 150 miles south of Nantucket.
