Led by an all-star cast, The Last Full Measure is the true story of William H. Pitsenbarger, a U.S. Air Force medic who personally saved over sixty men before making the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam’s bloodiest battle. Three decades later, Pentagon staffer Scott Huffman investigates a Congressional Medal of Honor request made by Pitsenbarger’s mission partner and parents. Huffman interviews Army vets to learn more about Pitsenbarger’s courageous acts – and uncovers a high-level conspiracy behind the medal’s denial.
Written and directed by Primetime Emmy winner Todd Robinson (1994, Outstanding Individual Achievement – Informational Programming, “The Legend of Billy the Kid”), The Last Full Measure special features include five featurettes and a photo gallery. The Last Full Measure Blu-ray and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.
