Special Preview Screening of Film about Air Force Medal of Honor Recipient to be held at Air Force Museum Theatre
The Air Force Museum Foundation will present a special preview screening of the film The Last Full Measure on Thursday, September 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Air Force Museum Theatre, followed by a Q&A and discussion with the filmmakers. The film will be released nationwide in theatres on October 25.
The Last Full Measure tells the true story of Piqua, OH native William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force medic who saved over sixty men in one of the harshest battles of the Vietnam War. Offered the chance to escape on the last helicopter out of the combat zone, Pitsenbarger stayed behind to save and defend the lives of his fellow soldiers. Thirty-four years later after his death on that battlefield, he was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. Tickets are only $12.00 each, $10.00 for Air Force Museum Foundation Members.
Tickets are available at https://airforcemuseum.centeredgeonline.com/movie/buyticketswithdate/76/09-19-2019 or by calling 937.656.9631.
