“On April 8, 1970, T-Bud took off in his F-100 leading two other F-100s in close air support of a friendly ground unit in contact with an unknown sized hostile force. Despite intense hostile ground fire, low overcast weather, and the extreme closeness of the opposing troops, Colonel Fisher flew multiple bombing and strafing passes, causing the hostile force to break contact and enabling the friendly unit to evacuate its troops. The professional competence, aerial skill and devotion to duty displayed by Colonel Fisher reflects great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.
Indeed, the seasoned pilot who dutifully served his country, without reservation, regardless of who was elected President, distinguished himself not only by receiving his second Flying Cross, but also by all the preparation spent cultivating the code he lived by one which answered the call of duty with a resounding yes! His 378th combat mission resulted in this wheels up fighter pilot, unlike so many he had known and respected and lost throughout his career, safely putting his wheels down for one last time. There, on that runway of a milestone, he taxied toward his squadron who waited with Champagne, sufficiently shaken, in celebration of a job well done and a life still living.”(1)
