We’ve got big news: Captain Scott R. Alwin, the subject of our current documentary project, Honor in the Air, will be inducted into the Hall of Heroes at the William S. Middleton Memorial Veteran’s Hospital in Madison, Wisconsin on Friday May 28th!
Inductees are selected based on their service to their country in conflicts or wartimes, as well as military decorations for valor, heroism, and/or specific combat actions. The Hall of Heroes is an ongoing program for formal recognition of valorous actions during a Veteran’s service to the United States of America.
Captain Alwin is the most highly decorated helicopter pilot of the Vietnam war, with 136 documented Air Medals as well as Vietnam Republic Medal, Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Silver Star, and Distinguished Flying Cross, all with oak leaf clusters. He served five tours of duty during the Vietnam war as an Army helicopter pilot, first flying slicks and later, gunships.
Several members of Scott’s family will attend the induction, along with our production crew and the media. We’ll share photos on the project Facebook page, honorintheair, and this blog after the event.
