Volunteering for the artillery because his father had not been an artillery in World War II
Scrambling up the bank, he found three wounded soldiers, one of them suffering from a head wound
He asked to be sent to Vietnam
While he was in the hospital, Davis heard that he was to be sent home. He petitioned General William Westmoreland to be allowed to stay with his unit
Although Davis was still so hobbled by his wounds that he was taken off the line and made a cook
Convinced that the heavily outnumbered Americans couldn't survive the attack, he decided to fire off at least one round from the damaged artillery piece before being overrun
An enemy mortar round exploded nearby, knocking Davis to the ground, but he got up and kept firing the howitzer
Despite the fact that he didn't know how to swim, he got in the water and paddled across on an air mattress from the American camp
Even though he was seriously wounded in the back and buttocks by friendly fire, he made his way to an American howitzer crew and resumed the fight
This color for Sammy L. Davis
This color for Bernard F. Fisher
Summary
Though suffering from painful wounds, he refused medical attention, joining another howitzer crew which fired at the large Viet Cong force until it broke contact and fled and Sergeant Davis' extraordinary heroism, at the risk of his life, is in keeping with the highest traditions of the military service and reflects great credit upon himself and the United States Sergeant Davis was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for his valorous action in 1968.
