"The Last Full Measure"

"The Last Full Measure" is the new Viet Nam war feature, based on a true story, written and directed by Todd Robinson, starring Sebastian Stan, Christopher Plummer, William Hurt and Jeremy Irvine, opening January 17, 2020:

"... a 'Pentagon staffer' (Stan) and Veterans fight for a 'Vietnam War Hero' who was denied the medal of honor. Fifty-three years after his death, 'Airman William H. Pitsenbarger, Jr.' aka 'Pits' is awarded the nation's highest military honor for his actions on the battlefield..."

Pitsenbarger was a 'United States Air Force Pararescueman' who flew on almost 300 rescue missions during the Vietnam War to aide downed soldiers and pilots. April 11, 1966, he was killed aiding and defending a unit of soldiers pinned down by an enemy assault. He was initially posthumously awarded the 'Air Force Cross', later upgraded to the 'Medal of Honor'.
