Operation Eagle Claw, conducted April 24, 1980, was a complex mission to rescue U.S. citizens taken hostage in the U.S. embassy in Iran. Tragically, the attempt ended in the death of eight service members, including five from Hurlburt Field’s 1st Special Operations Wing. (DoD photo by U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Matthew Loken)
