The Medal of Honor FA-18 Hornet
I love this. Gen. James F. Amos, commandant of the Marine Corps, unveiled a restored F/A-18 Hornet in dedication to recent Medal of Honor recipients during a ceremony aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., Nov. 2. This video, by Cpl. Isaac Lamberth, takes a look behind the scenes into what it took to get the aircraft ready. It took nearly two months of planning for Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 101 to design and restore the F/A-18. VMFAT-101 custom-painted the aircraft with the names of recent Medal of Honor recipients, Cpl. Jason L. Dunham, a Scio, N.Y., native, Sgt. Dakota Meyer, a Greensburg, Ken., native, Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael A. Monsoor, a Long Beach, Calif., native and Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy, a Smithtown, N.Y., native., for the ceremony.
