I just wanted to know why it was being released in Portugal first, when he was born in Piqua, OH? I have been waiting for this movie to be released, since I heard about it being made. It should be released in the U.S. first. Coming from one of his relatives, I think it should be released where he was born. I'm not happy, where it's going to be released at and when if ever, is it supposed to be released in the U.S.?
Born in 1944 in Piqua, Ohio, William H. Pitsenbarger was an ambitious only child. He wanted to quit high school to join the U.S. Army Special Forces' "Green Berets," but his parents convinced him to stay in school. After graduating in 1962, Pitsenbarger joined the Air Force. After basic training, he volunteered for pararescue work and embarked on a rigorous training program. Arriving in Vietnam in August 1965, Pitsenbarger completed more than 250 missions, earning the Airman's Medal and the Republic of Vietnam's Medal of Military Merit and Gallantry Cross with Bronze Palm. He was was only 21 years old when he was killed in action. But in his short life and valorous Air Force career, he embodied the pararescueman's motto: "That Others May Live." More information about William Pitsenbarger is available on the National Museum of the United States Air Force Web site, www.nationalmuseum.af.mil. Edit (Coming Soon)
For coordinating the successful rescues, caring for the wounded and sacrificing his life while aggressively defending his comrades, William H. Pitsenbarger received the Air Force Cross on June 30, 1966. After review, the original award was upgraded, and on Dec. 8, 2000, the Medal of Honor was presented to his family in a ceremony at the U.S. Air Force Museum. Airman Pitsenbarger is the 59th Medal of Honor recipient, and sixth enlisted recipient, from the Air Force and its predecessor organizations. Many of Pitsenbarger's personal effects are on display at the National Museum of the United States Air Force (formerly the U.S. Air Force Museum) in Dayton, Ohio. Edit (Coming Soon)
