On November 18, 1967, Sergeant Sammy Davis was in Vietnam when his unit at “Fire Support Base Cudgel”[7] west of Cai Lay, fell under machine gun fire and heavy mortar attack by an estimated three companies of Vietcong from the 261st Viet Cong Main Force Battalion. Upon detecting an enemy position, Davis manned a machine gun to give his comrades covering fire so they could fire artillery in response. Davis was seriously wounded, but ignored warnings to take cover and accept medical attention, taking over the unit’s burning howitzer and firing several shells himself.
