Behind the Scenes of the Medal of Honor F/A-18 Hornet

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.

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.
