DAYTON – The Air Force Museum Foundation will present a special preview screening of the film “The Last Full Measure” on Thursday, Sept. 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 Oct. 25.
“The Last Full Measure” tells the true story of Piqua native William Pitsenbarger, an Air Force medic who saved over 60 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 or $10.00 for Air Force Museum Foundation Members.
Tickets are available at airforcemuseum.centeredgeonline.com/movie/buyticketswithdate/76/09-19-2019 or by calling (937) 656-9631.
