NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Four Tennessee National Guard soldiers have been given the Soldier's Medal for acts of heroism, three of them stemming from a shooting at the Millington Armory last year.

Tennessee's adjutant general, Maj. Gen. Max Haston, presented the medal to Lt. Col. Hunter L. Belcher, a Lebanon native; Maj. William J. Crawford, a Henderson native; and Command Sgt. Maj. Christopher T. Crawford, a Lawrenceburg native, were given the medal for their actions when an assailant entered the Millington Armory last October.

Sgt. 1st Class Fred C. Mize III, a Strawberry Plains native, was awarded the medal after crawling into a burning vehicle and aiding three injured occupants in February 2013.

All four are current or former members of the Tennessee National Guard Recruiting and Retention Command.
