Unveiling Ceremony in honor of Medal of Honor Recipient CMSgt Etchberger

The Secretary of the Air Force hosted an unveiling ceremony in honor of Medal of Honor recipient CMSgt Richard L. Etchbereger this morning at our Air Force Memorial.

With remarks from CMSgt (ret.) John McCauslin, CMSAF James A. Roy and the Honorable Michael B. Donley, this ceremony was a memorable moment to reflect on the gallantry, valor and courage displayed by CMSgt Etchberger, as he gave the ultimate sacrifice to save his fellowmen on March 11, 1968.

Etchberger's heroic actions on March 11, 1968, will forever be etched into the sacred wall at our Air Force Memorial. Generations of family of Chief Etchberger were present as their name became part of a permanent record of our nation's gratitude. AFA was honored to be a part of this ceremony.
