The Wright Patterson Air Force Museum is not just a couple hundred aircraft on display, it is also the stories of heroes. We took our time in museums learning about the men and women who risked so much and those who gave all to defend our country. Below is a link to one man’s story, 21 year old William Pitsenbarger, who gave his life for the men he came to rescue. William Hart Pitsenbarger was a United States Air Force Pararescueman who flew on almost 300 rescue missions during the Vietnam War to aid downed soldiers and pilots. On April 11, 1966, he was killed aiding and defending a unit of soldiers pinned down by an enemy assault during the Vietnam War
The Last Full Measure is an outstanding movie released in 2020 about this hero and the efforts to finally distinguish him with the Medal of Honor. Link next.
