US Army Sergeant Roy Perez Benavidez

During intense enemy fire on May 2, 1968, US Army Sergeant Roy Perez Benavidez valiantly rescued his fellow soldiers at Loc Ninh, Vietnam.  (The Vietnam War was from 1955 to 1975.)  Benavidez was severely wounded during the rescue, and courageously continued to carry soldiers to safety and to destroy classified documents, preventing their capture by the enemy.  On that dangerous day, Benavidez saved the lives of at least eight US servicemen.
