The Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial will honor Air Force Airman First Class William Pitsenbarger (Medal of Honor Recipient), the 30th Anniversary of Desert Storm, and our nation’s heroes through a live and virtual tribute event on 31 May 2021 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (PDT). The event is open to the public but seating is limited.
This year’s event will honor United States Air Force Airman First Class William H. Pitsenbarger whose story was portrayed in the recent major motion picture “The Last Full Measure”. The movie showcased his story in the Vietnam War including actions which led to him being posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, saving a number of American soldiers in Vietnam in 1966. Attendees and speakers will include the Film Director, Producer, Airmen who served with Pitsenbarger, and the Army Soldiers that he saved.
