Plot Summary

In 1999 an up-and-coming political staffer at the Department of Defence, Scott Huffman, is given the job of investigating a request to upgrade an award to the Medal of Honour. After conspicuous acts of gallantry Airman William H Pitsenbarger was killed in Vietnam in 1966. He was recommended for the MoH but his award was downgraded to the Air Force Cross. For over 30 years his comrades and family have been lobbying for him to receive the medal. Huffman cares more about his own career than this case but the more he looks into it, the more convinced he is that Pitsenbarger deserves the MoH and should have received it in 1966. Why didn't he then? Written by grantss

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia During the credits, there are interviews with the real airmen and soldiers who knew Pitsenbarger. See more »
Goofs The uniform worn by Pits is NOT incorrect. He is shown with his name in white on blue over one breast and USAF in white on blue over the other as well as blue & silver stripes on his sleeve. There are several photos of the real-life A1C Pitsenbarger taken in Vietnam while wearing jungle fatigues with the white on blue name tags and blue and silver rank insignia. Subdued name tags and rank insignia did not become mandatory in the Air Force until the 1970s. See more »
