The Making of a Hero: The Life and Death of Sgt. Rodney M. Davis

 

The contentious issue of race was threatening to divide America in 1967, but it had no place along the frontlines of Vietnam, where every American depended on the guy next to him for survival. No matter their race, creed or pedigree. So it was for Sgt. Rodney M. Davis on Sept. 6, 1967, when he lunged atop an enemy grenade to save the lives of five fellow Marines at the expense of his own. Davis, just 25, was no stranger to looking out for his own after growing up in the Jim Crow South and being forced to do likewise.
