As part of our partnership with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, Great Americans is proud to bring you the stories of real American heroes like Drew Dix. As a young special forces officer in Vietnam, Dix drove his jeep on a rescue mission to save an American nurse trapped by a surprise Viet Cong onslaught on their local village during the massive Tet Offensive. The bravery that Dix displayed in the face of superior enemy forces rallied the demoralized South Vietnamese troops in the village and ended up turning the tide of battle on one of the deadliest days of the Vietnam War: http://www.greatamericans.com/video/Portraits-of-Valor-Drew-Dix-2
