TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, 2010

In the morning, the President will receive the Presidential Daily Briefing in the Oval Office. The President will then meet with senior advisors in the Oval Office. These meetings are closed press.

In the afternoon, the President and the Vice President will have lunch in the Private Dining Room. This lunch is closed press.

Later in the afternoon, the President will award Chief Master Sergeant Richard L. Etchberger, U.S. Air Force, the Medal of Honor for conspicuous gallantry. Chief Etchberger will receive the Medal of Honor posthumously for his heroic actions in combat on March 11, 1968, in the country of Laos. He displayed immeasurable courage and uncommon valor -- deliberately exposing himself to enemy fire in order to place his three surviving wounded comrades in the rescue slings permitting them to be airlifted to safety. As he was finally being rescued, he was fatally wounded by enemy ground fire. Chief Etchberger's sons, Richard Etchberger, Cory Etchberger and Steve Wilson will join the President at the White House to commemorate their father's example of selfless service and sacrifice. The Vice President will also attend. This event is open press.

Later, the President and the Vice President will meet with Secretary of Defense Gates. This meeting is closed press.
