Event description

Description

On behalf of the family of Cumberland area native and Medal of Honor recipient SSgt Robert Hartsock, we’d like to invite you to join New Shepherd Films’ premiere event of “Forgotten Heroes – The Robert Hartsock Story”. This award-winning documentary interweaves Bob Hartsock’s story with an overview of dog handlers and their dogs in the Vietnam War while carefully explaining the major issues that America faced during this generally unpopular war.

What makes this documentary so special is that few realize over 10,000 American lives were saved by the actions of over 4,000 military working dogs and their handlers. And on February 23, 1969, Bob Hartsock became the first (and remains the only) Military Working Dog Handler to have ever received our nation’s highest military honor. Yet Bob Hartsock has become one of those forgotten heroes.

This premiere is our way to honor his family, friends, and fellow servicemen at what will be a once-in-a-lifetime reunion. His award, barely a footnote in the August 1970 events documented at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, remains a shining example of courage and resolve in the face of certain defeat.
