50th Anniversary of Captain Steven Bennett

On the 50th anniversary of Captain Steven Bennett’s Medal of Honor mission over Vietnam, the National Medal of Honor Museum had the privilege to speak with Capt. Bennett’s daughter Angela and Maj. Mike Brown, USMC, who was with Captain Bennett, in the back seat of the OV-10 Bronco, on this historic mission on June 29, 1972. Captain Bennett is one of 19 US Air Force Medal of Honor recipients and his actions highlight a life of service, courage, and sacrifice that went well above and beyond the call of duty.
