There were many witnesses.

On 25 January 1969 in Phu My village, a ground unit sustained casualties from a NVA bunker complex. Cozzalio destroyed the main bunker with minigun fire and hand grenades dropped as he flew 10' over the bunker, then he landed and briefed the ground commander on the least-defended path through the bunker complex.

The unit advanced until they hit another bunker, and Cozzalio became frustrated over their refusal to advance on what he knew to be a lightly-defended position. So he landed his OH-6 on top of it, drew his saber and .357 pistol, and cleared the bunker.

When the OH-6 ran low on fuel, he traded it for a Cobra and continued to support the infantry advance.

He was awarded the DSC for his actions that day.
