Captain Tom Hudner USN(ret) received the Medal of Honor for bringing in his F4U Corsair wheels up in an attempt to rescue his wingman, Jesse Brown, who was trapped in the cockpit of his burning plane. The crash was in an area close to Chinese troops. Captain Hudner only was armed with a revolver, They were providing air support to troops, mostly USMC, near Chosin in Korea 60 years ago. Captain Hudner is now returning to Korea to try to find the wreckage and find Jesse Brown's remains.

Your could not meet a nicer, finer gentlemen, He is still sharp as a tack mentally but in the past year of so has gotten a bit frail physically. It sounds like a rugged trip and I hope he is successful and returns home safely.
