  Medal of Honor Lecture by Cory Etchberger  
(Corps)

Cory Etchberger, the son of the late Chief Master Sgt. Richard Etchberger, who received the Medal of Honor in 1968 during the Vietnam War, will speak as part of the Corps' Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series.

Cory Etchberger will to share the story of his father's and family's service to our country.

Richard Etchberger received the Medal of Honor after his team of technicians with the Air Force 1st Combat Evaluation Group were overrun by enemy forces at a top secret defensive position on Phou Pha Thi mountain in Houaphanh Province, Laos.

Despite having received little or no combat training, Etchberger single-handedly held off the enemy with an M-16 while simultaneously directing air strikes into the area and calling for air rescue. Once he helped evacuate the injured,he was fatally shot.
