Captain Paris Davis, a retired US Army colonel, was awarded the Medal of Honor by President Joe Biden in a ceremony at the White House on Friday, nearly 60 years after a grueling firefight during which Davis risked his life to protect his fellow soldiers in Vietnam.
Davis is one of the first Black Special Forces officers in the US Army and has previously received the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, and Air Medal with “V” device, among other honors. During the attack, which lasted nearly 19 hours, Davis was wounded several times, personally engaged in hand-to-hand combat, and crawled nearly 150 yards under enemy fire to rescue two of his fellow soldiers. Biden called Davis “a true hero,” and said it may be “the most consequential day” of his presidency. Davis has been hailed as a selfless leader who embodied the Army Special Forces’ motto of “quiet professional.”
