Captain William J. Kossler, USCG award presented to UK Royal Air Force Joint Helicopter Command (JHC) Chinook Force and the Joint Helicopter Support Squadron (JHSS), at VFS Annual Forum 76, October 5-8, 2020 (Virtual), for saving the town of Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire, England.

After a month's worth of rain fell in just 24 hours in August 2019, the reservoir spillway above the small town started to collapse.  Eight crew members flew three Chinooks for 58 flying hours and delivered 620 one-ton bags of aggregate to shore up the spillway, saving the town.
