    1st Lt. David E. Bryant, a Greenwood, Ind., native and demobilization officer at Camp Atterbury, was recognized, Aug. 16, by being awarded the Indiana Distinguished Service Medal for saving the life of a fellow passenger on an airline flight earlier this year.

    Bryant sat in an exit row seat on a flight from Indianapolis to Minneapolis in late January 2011 without having the slightest idea that another man’s life would be in his hands. When the call came for him to act, however, he was ready.
