COMBAT STORIES FROM Vietnam

Sammy Davis | 2nd Battalion, 4th Artillery Regiment, 9th Infantry Division - Army

7:32   |   It wasn't any ragtag Viet Cong, it was a battalion of NVA that was assaulting the artillery battery where Sammy Davis was stationed in the Mekong Delta. After an RPG hit his gun, he regained consciousness and found his position nearly overrun. After firing every round he had, he saw a wounded American on the other side of the river. He knew what he had to do and his actions brought him consideration for the nation's highest military honor, the Medal of Honor.
