Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
During the credits there are interviews with the real airmen and soldiers who knew Pitsenbarger. See more »
The uniform worn by Pits is NOT incorrect. He is shown with his name in white on blue over one breast and USAF in white on blue over the other as well as blue & silver stripes on his sleeve. There are several photos of the real-life A1C Pitsenbarger taken in Vietnam while wearing jungle fatigues with the white on blue name tags and blue and silver rank insignia. Subdued name tags and rank insignia did not become mandatory in the Air Force until the 1970s. See more »
Justice delayed is justice denied. That's my damn agenda.

This was a great movie. People who nit-pick it miss the point. Movies are supposed to entertain us, they are not history lessons. Sure there are a few mistakes, but nothing that detracts from the story or the man's heroism.
And for you guys talking about his "sergeant strips" that change did not take effect until Oct. 1967 and this action happened in April 1966. At the time of the action his 3-stripes indicated Senior Airman, which is still an Airman.
Sit back and enjoy the film. I'm sure you won't regret it. God bless you William Pitsenbarger.
