Other Comments:
Awarded Medal of Honor while serving with the 9th Army Air Force in Europe.

Assigned to protect a bomber mission over Germany, Colonel Howard single-handedly engaged thirty German aircraft, shooting down three with several other probables either destroyed or damaged. Before it was over, three of his guns were out of action and he was dangerously low on fuel. 

Howard was the only fighter pilot to be awarded the Medal of Honor in the European Theater of Operations.
