About the film:
This short tells the incredible true story of a living American hero who after 60 years has been nominated for the Medal of Honor for his heroic feat of protecting a carrier battle group from seven Russian fighters.

As the Korean War raged, Russia was not only supporting, but secretly fighting against the U.S. during this armed conflict with two superpowers at the brink of a nuclear World War III.

One Navy pilot, who despite being outnumbered, took on seven superior Russian fighters. He not only won, but was ordered to keep it secret for over 60 years.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
