GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas - A stencil with the name of Chief Master Sgt. Richard “Dick” Etchberger is prepared so it can be sandblasted into the POW/MIA Memorial here Sept. 16. Chief Etchberger was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions on March 11, 1968, when he single-handedly held off an enemy attack on Mount Phou Pha Thia at Lima Site 85 only to be fatally wounded as he was being evacuated. President Barack Obama presented the Medal of Honor to Chief Etchberger’s family Sept. 21 at the White House. (U.S. Air Force photo/Master Sgt. Randy Mallard)
