On June 3 2019, the Dayton VA Medical Center honors Joseph Guy LaPointe, Jr. by naming their auditorium in his honor, 50 years after his death while on patrol in Vietnam. Joseph ran through heavy fire to assist the wounded. He crawled directly in view of an enemy bunker and shielded one soldier with his body, giving assistance to another. He was hit but continued to provide aid.
