A common theme for all those who receive the Medal of Honor is that they’re selfless beyond comprehension – that they often put everyone else before themselves. This trait often earns them bewildered admiration from those who witness their incredible bravery.
For the soldiers of Charlie Company, 2nd Battalion, 16th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division, Air Force Airman 1st Class William Hart Pitsenbarger was such a man.

Born in Piqua Ohio, Pitsenbarger joined the Air Force right out of high school, but not before first trying to drop out to join the Army Special Forces. His parents convinced him to get his diploma before enlisting.
