Illinois Medal of Honor Recipient, Sammy Davis Shares His Story of Combat, and Emotional Survival

On this Memorial Day Weekend of 2017, we open our archives to Chicago, 2008, when we sat down with Sammy Davis who wears the Medal of Honor for action in Vietnam.

Mr Davis shared with us his story of the day he was engaged in the combat that lead to his being the recipient of the nation’s highest military award.

Mr Davis also shares how the memory of that day, though now 50 years ago, sticks with him, and what he shares with recent combat veterans about how to deal with the emotions of combat that never leave you.
