Must Read

While on a mountain in the A Shau Valley of Vietnam, Ken David and his battalion were attack by the North Vietnamese Army. Six U.S. troops were killed and 14 more were wounded, including David. He has since been credited with saving his 13 wounded comrades by drawing the enemy’s attention toward himself and emptying 27 magazines worth of return fire so his comrades could escape. In 1970 he was awarded the U.S. Army’s second highest commendation of valor, the Distinguished Service Cross. Herm Breuer, director of Trumbull County Veteran Services, is now revamping his efforts to have David awarded the Medal of Honor. U.S. Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman have signed on, as well as Representatives Tim Ryan, Bill Johnson, and David Joyce.
