Awarded For United States Air Force Service in Vietnam or Thailand between 22 December 1966 and 2 January 1867. To entice North Vietnamese MiGs into a fight for the purpose of destroying enemy aircraft harassing U.S. bombing mission, slower Air Force aircraft flew identical flight paths for several days until it was learned enemy aircraft would arrive to attack. On 2 January 1967 North Vietnam took the bait and sent up several MiG-21's that were met by much faster Air Force Phantom F-4's which eliminated nine enemy MiGs with no Air Force losses. Operation Bolo was a complete success.
