"Duke" Cunningham was one of the most highly decorated United States Navy pilots in the Vietnam War, receiving the Navy Cross once, the Silver Star twice, the Air Medal 15 times, and the Purple Heart for wounds he received under enemy fire. After military life, he eventually became a Congressman. Unfortunately, Cunningham is currently incarcerated at the United States Penitentiary at Tucson, in the minimum security satellite camp, for tax evasion, conspiracy to commit bribery, mail fraud, and wire fraud. His projected release date is June 4, 2013. He was one "helluva'" Naval Aviator, though!

"Duke" Cunningham and his RIO (radio intercept officer) Willie "Irish" Driscoll survived the SAM (surface to air missile) attack at the end of the video by "ejecting", and parachuting into the South China Sea. They were rescued by helicopter.
