Inspiring Movie

I saw the “The Last Full Measure” yesterday. To say it was an intense, emotional and moving experience is an understatement. This touched me on so many levels; as an Army Vietnam Huey pilot, a veteran coming home from war and as a Jolly Green Giant Combat Search and Rescue trained USAF Helicopter pilot. The grunts who were on the ground in Vietnam appreciated the helicopter crews but when you watch this movie you really appreciate the bravery and sacrifice of soldiers fighting the ugly ground war. As a proud former member of the USAF Air Rescue and Recovery Service (ARRS), watching the selflessness and incredible bravery of A1C Pittensbarger an Air Force Pararescueman (PJ) so honored and exemplified the Rescue credo “These Things We Do That Others May Live”. Highly Recommend
