(Citation Needed) - SYNOPSIS: Aviation Warfare Systems Operator First Class Jesse P. Hubble, United States Navy, was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal for heroism at the risk of life while serving with Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron TWO, on 9 November 2007. Petty Officer Hubble launched to conduct a six-and-a-half night contact search and rescue exercise. While returning his wingman experienced a controllable failure and ditched in the sea. Petty Officer Hubble immediately donned his rescue gear and prepared for water entry. Without hesitation he entered the low-light, non-moon, open ocean to rescue seven survivors. He remained in 63-degree waters for 45 minutes until all seven survivors were safely hoisted aboard the rescue helicopter.
