Mr. Davis; 
I'm sure with your extremely busy life you wouldn't remember me, however, I will forever remember you. My name is Daniel Tully. In 2001 I was stationed at Ft. Sill Okla. with 2-4 FA. During field training at White Sands N.M., I was privileged with the opportunity of meeting you during a promotion ceremony. It was there I was promoted to the rank of SSG. You sir pined the rank on me, which was the greatest moment of my military career. I am now with 6-8 CAV. out of Ft. Stewart GA. I was deployed to Iraq in October of 2007 where after six months I was injured and required spinal surgery. I am now in Atlanta GA. at the Shepherd Spinal Center going through rehab. I was very lucky compared to what it could have been. Soon I will be walking normal. I now have 18 years in service, so I am now trying to just complete my last two. If you read this, I just wanted to let you know that I have told your story to just about every soldier I have been able to meet. I tell everyone of your boot story where you wiggled your toes at the General. Sir, you have been such an inspiration to me over these years. Your military accomplishments and your civilian service has motivated me and inspired me to become a better soldier and leader. 
I wanted to say GOD BLESS you and THANK YOU for what you do! I consider you as one of our American treasures. Every soldier and veteran are heroes. Some become legend's. You sir are a legend. Thank you!

Sammy, I just wanted to say how great your speech was at the Wounded Warrior Conference at Camp Pendleton. Your insight into the mind of those who have seen combat was pure and helpful. Your love and respect for those who served with you and all those who serve now was touching. You added so much to the conference and I just want to thank you again. Hero is a word that is over used but not in your case. You are an American Treasure. Don

SFC Davis, 
I am currently serving in your old Battery, C 2/4 FA. Your story inspires and motivates me, and I am proud to be in a unit with the kind of history C 2/4 has. Yours are some big shoes to fill... I hope my peers and I are cut out for it. "Audacia"... By Daring Deeds

Sammy, What a great weekend we had in Rising Sun as you helped us to dedicate the new Veterans Tribute Tower. We've had so many comments about you and your speech, your friendliness to the people and especially your talk to the students of the Rising Sun Schools. Everyone of them had nothing but praise for you !! This tribute tower will stand for a long time after we're all gone but people will remember just what it stands for--to honor those who served in the past, to honor those serving today and to inspire those who will serve in the future. So sorry that Dixie couldn't make the trip and we're glad she's feeling better. We missed her great hugs. Keep up the great work you do for OUR nation and taking the message to the students about what makes America great. I had a student stop me in the local IGA and he said, " You don't lose until you quit trying." We hope to see you again soon and again THANKS for being here for the dedication and making it a huge success !! The very best to you & Dixie !!

Sammy, old buddy, 
I stumbled on this and I wanted to say Hi. I used to see you at all the MIA rallies back in the Vietnam days. I also saw you at the LA parade or fiasco as some called it. No matter what, you were always the most gracious and wonderful. You remember me, I had the two purple hearts and I was from the 198th Light Infantry Brigade. I used to take Ann Curran everywhere in those days. I was in I core 67-68 and especially at the Tet 68. At the Daley plaza you and your son sat graciously while I changed a roll of film so we could get a photo together. I still got it, I prize it. I remember I wrote you when you were sick. Sammy, there is no way to really thank you for what you did. Where does one start? I did plenty while I was there but I never got a chance to do anything like you did. I consider myself one of the luckiest men that ever crossed the pond. I had a mortar land 2 feet behind me while in a foxhole, just a sand bag between us. I had a bullet land in a rice paddy 2 feet from me one day. I was mortared 40 times and maybe ambushed 40 times but you did all I did in just one night. The fact you could not swim really amazes me. It's like you had an idea of what's right and kept at it even when the plan got fuzzy. I always wondered if you got the combat infantry badge. It seems strange that people tell me that arty doesn't get them. Well where you were at arty was just like infantry, maybe more hectic. I will try to find a way to contact you and send you a copy of our photo. Sammy you are the greatest. I am up at the Wheaton VFW and we are resurrecting a Military Order of Purple Hearts chapter which will meet there also. If you are ever up in the area, please let me know. It is always a thrill to see you. I would love it if you could stop at the VFW and I could probably get you a free lifetime to the MOPH.

I am a care giver and I have taken care of your cousin Shirley for 4 years. I have dusted off your picture so many times ,I would know you anywhere. She is so very proud of you. My son is in the Jr ROTC program in his high school and has your picture up there.

Mr. Davis,
I met you at the Ronald Reagan Library on 2/9/08 I was one of the Young Marines who helped you put your Medal of Honor back on after you let us hold it and I wanted to say it was an awesome honor to meet you and wanted to thank you for serving for our country I thought it would be really cool if I could interveiw you for our Young Marine magazine Sincerely, Young Marine Corporal Schull

Thank you for signing the photo for Lifegate Christian School. I spoke to the students about integrity and perserverance and at the end I presented them with your framed, autographed, citation and photo. They received it proudly and planned to post it on the wall for all to see. May God bless you for what you have done for freedom and liberty in America.

Sir, I've never met you but I know your story; as a former Marine sergeant I want you to know that I am proud today to be a Marine because of the guts, "can-do" and sacrifices of men like you. You, sir, are MY hero.

 I saw the blurb on the nightly news and wondered what you have been up to these past many years. How is the family and especially how are you?

 Sammy, I am from Robinson, and would like to meet you. I was in Viet Nam in 1970 - 1971. I was in the Marine Corps for 12 years. I feel very insignificant, because I didn't do anything other than fly flair crew at night. We did help save a company of Marines surrounded by a battalion of Viet Cong, by kicking out over 96 flairs. However, I have so much respect and admiration for people like you that are my heroes. . Thanks. May God Bless you.

I just wanted to say hi. It's been many years since our paths crossed in Lake LaDonna, Washington DC, Kokomo, Brit Small concerts, etcetera. You remain an inspiration to me. After I retired from AT&T I got elected as the County Superintendent for Veterans Assistance. Your picture is on the wall in my county office so that I have a daily inspiration to keeping plugging for my vets. I now serve my fellow veterans as a county veterans service officer in Kendall County, Illinois. It is a bittersweet job. Each day I see men and women (and now children) that have been wounded in so many different ways. I get them some general assistance for food, shelter, and utilities and I attempt to get them into the VA system for the help they so richly deserve. But, the "red tape" is so huge and the wait is so long. I am a firm believer that if our government is so willing to send us to war - then damn it they should take care of us when we come home. Anyway, I hope things are going well for you. Please take care...

 Dear SFC Davis,
It was a distinct pleasure, privilege, and honor to meet you at the 2007 AUSA convention in Washington, DC. Please give my best regards to COL Joe Marm, whom I knew at West Point when I was a plebe in 1972-1973, and he was a Captain, teaching Military Psychology and Leadership.

 Hello Mr. Davis!
I hope you had an enjoyable rest of your stay in Green Bay and that your trip home was a good one. How was the Packers game?
I want to thank you again for taking the time to visit with our kids at Ashwaubenon High School. They're still talking with me about it and I know you had a profound effect on a large number of them. The girl you allowed to hold your medal just before leaving the school, Lauren Heim, was especially very touched. Jody VanLaanen, the quarterback of the football team, was thrilled that you took the time to appear at their game, as were other team members. They won that one quite easily and are unbeaten at 4-0 and currently ranked first in the state in Division 2. They had a tough one Friday night against the number six ranked team, but won 17-13 in terrible wind and rain. I have to tell you, after that game I approached our fullback, T.J. Pierce (another terrific kid), and told him, "At this school, you never give up, right?" His only response was, "Sammy Davis." True story!
I will be getting the DVD from the game you were at this week and would like to send it to you, along with some photos for you to keep. If you could send your mailing address, I'll get it off to you. If I also included several extra photos, would you be willing to sign them for the kids and the school? I know the kids would be thrilled. I would attach post-it notes on each for your reference.
Jody and a couple other kids on the team asked me if I would keep you posted on their season, so I would like to do that if it's okay with you. They have what should be a fairly easy game this week, but then two tougher ones coming up. Hopefully, I can get some additional film of a game to you yet this season.
Best wishes. It was a true pleasure, and distinct honor, meeting you. Say "hello" to your wife, Dixie, for me.
Mike Lyga

I shook your hand last Saturday; it was my first time at the Howard County reunion. I wish I had been at the last 24! What a moving and rewarding experience. It allowed me to make peace with my "ghosts". I am a former Viet Nam Marine; 69 - 70. I can't wait until next year. I hope to see you there again. I remember seeing you on a TV program and speaking but I can't remember which. I was impressed then with your humility and even more so now since I met you in person. Keep up what your are doing; our country needs many more individulas like yourself. God bless...

I just would like to say it was an Honor to be in your presence. I am the girl from the film crew at the Wall in Wickham Park who had interviewed you. Although I never did find you at the end of the night to take a picture, meeting you was an amazing experience for me .Thank you!

Dear Sammy, I have known of you for several years primarily from the Miracle Rides in Indianapolis. August 7th of 2007, there is going to be the largest pro-troops rally ever held in the United States presented by "Operation America Rising" and "The Gathering of Eagles" of which I am the State Coordinator. These rallies are to be held in every State Capitol across the country. This is an event which just cries out for your attendance. I know you are very much in demand as well you should be, but if there was ever an event which needs to hear your message, this is the one. Please contact me on this matter if at all possible. Our respective websites are  and  Thank you sir for your consideration. I hope to hear from you soon!

Mr. Davis,
I wanted to personally thank you for this evening's speech here at the United States Naval Academy. I have been "asked" (similar to you being "asked" to learn to play the harmonica) to attend many briefs and speeches here at USNA, however, the speech you give is an optional speech. I wanted to make sure that you knew that everyone in that room either heard you before (as I did last year as well) or heard by word of mouth that your story was unable to be justifiably retold by anyone except you, and that many of us wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Hearing your story has touched my life in a way that is difficult to describe in words, and I know that many other Midshipman feel the same way. The manner in which you present yourself as a "spokesman" for your fallen brothers and tell your story as if was just another day on the job is one thing that has stunned me two years in a row. You are one of the most humble individuals I've ever encountered and it is unfortunate that we do not have more soldiers and men in this large Earth like yourself. Your story is an inspiration to all Midshipman, and I've spread your story to my family and friends who cannot make it to the speech, although next year I intend on bringing a close friend from Philadelphia down to hear you (he tells me he won't let me tell him over the phone about you without hearing you speak himself).
I can only imagine how difficult it must have been and must be to this day to attend functions at and around the Vietnam Memorial, seeing as your closest brothers' names are etched in stone forever there. You do an amazing thing retelling this story, and I cannot even begin to understand the emotions behind retelling this story every time you speak to an audience, but I can say that I deeply appreciate the sacrifices you have made to be able to pass on your word to people like myself.
I know (from your speech last year) that you were not welcomed back to the states and given the respect you deserved at the time, and that can never be repaid or made up. I would however, like to make sure you know that I am thanked every time I am in public for "my service" despite the fact that I haven't even begun serving my time in this great military. I do however, see the bigger picture, and understand that they are not so much thanking me, but rather they are thanking the uniform I proudly wear and praising the men and women, like yourself, who have worn this uniform so proudly before me. Your sacrifices and the sacrifices of your closest brothers will never be forgotten, and that is a promise I will keep with me and pass on to generations to come after I am long gone.
Once again, I would like to thank you for giving your time and retelling such an emotional and amazing story to my fellow Midshipman and me. It will not be forgotten, and I look forward to seeing you again in the future!

Hi, My name is Jake Martin I was one if the students you talked to at center grove high school on Tuesday January 30. I just want to say that that speech and story made me make my decision on what im doing after high school. I am going to go into the army. I think that we all need to look up to you and try to be like you not only because you are a hero and a great citizen of America but a nice and respectable man. YOU ARE MY HERO

I was looking around online and saw that you were in Washington D.C. on the 15th of November. I live about 10 minutes from D.C. in Alexandria. I don't know if you remember me or not but I am the Grandson of Tom and Vera Hammond. The son of Judy Wells. I remember the family get togethers and playing games with your boys. I was much younger then. I had just got out of the military not to long ago. When I got to my unit in Germany I saw a picture of you on the wall. It was inspiring. When I went to Iraq, I remembered what you have accomplished and it helped me get through some of the toughest of times. Thank you. I hope that you will be in the D.C. area again and would like to say thank you and maybe get some dinner.

Sam & Dixie, 
You both were on my flight today from IND to BOS, Sept. 26, 2006, en route to the annual MOH Convention in BOS. I was the flight attendant on your NW Airlink flight. I wish so much that I had known about your trip so that I could have learned more about you both. Perhaps, you get tired of talking about your Vietnam tour of duty, and if that is the case, I understand. Just wanted you to know that I really appreciate all vets, (my dad is a Navy minesweeper Vet from WWII), and the respect shown you and Dixie today was heartfelt. It really made my day. Thanks so much, and hope to see you both again, Cynthia Carter, Northwest Airlink/Pinnacle Airlines Flight Attendant-MEM.

Sir, I was going through my old things today. I came across an old memory from high school. Many years ago, you came to a small town in MO called St. Clair. What a man like you was doing in little podunk St. Clair is beyond me. You shared your story and it touched a chord. From then on, I knew I wanted to enlist. My health has prevented following in your footsteps. You said in your speech that to show honor to someone who had received the MOH, servicemen saluted. No one in our gym seemed to understand the story you had told and did not feel the gravity of your loss and more importantly the loss of those who had not survived, or survived intact. I was the one who asked how to salute. You showed me, and I saluted you. At that age, it was all I knew how to do. My bravado was not without affect and I think some of the students got it later, after you left. I consider that moment one of my most special. Not everyone gets the chance. I got your autograph and you have a no! te on the pic that says, "Thanks for the salute." It is I who should thank you, on so many levels. I am 32 years old now and have a family. I have not been able to serve, but it is because of you and your story that I grieve and mourn with every soldier lost and every family that is wrent. I shall henceforth watch with pride the scene in Forrest Gump and think of you. It is strange to think that all this time I had that moment on tape. I found that old pic with your autograph. I teach now and will place it on my wall at school in hopes that kids will ask and I can tell a story, a story that will go beyond you and me. Maybe they will get it. Sincerely, Ryan.

Dear Mr. Davis. I saw a documentary on tv tonight where you were speaking . I can't believe your great humulity. You will not take the credit for being a hero. I truly believe you when you describe being scared and just trying to survive. Our oldest Son Mike is a black hawk helicopter pilot. He is deployed in Kosovo and is a major in the army reserve. He is on a years active duty and has a wife and four children back home in Utah. We are Mormons and have had both Mike and his brother LaMar serve 2 year missions for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. If you have young Mormon missionaries cross your path you will recognize them by their black suits and ties and a tag on their labels proclaiming they are L.D.S. missionaries. They have a wonderful humble attitude like yourself and have a spiritual message to deliver to you. May the Lord and , his Son, Jesus Christ continue to bless your life, Sincerely, Stan.

Hello Mr. Davis, I met you once at the convention at March AFB in 98 or 99 while I was serving in the USMC infantry, and I just decided to look you up on the web, with no idea you had a site. Thanks for your sincere time back then. I was glad to see your photos available. Sory to hear about Mr. Doss. The service never leaves my mind, it seems I am always living in the shadow of those days. Why is it like that? Why do I want to be trapped in those times? Why does civilian life seem meaningless?

My Daughter Emily and I spent time with you when you came to St Augutine 1991, October 25 to November 2. I was volunteering with the National Guard to assist in bringing the Cathedral Parish Catholic school children to visit the Moving Wall that was set up on the Mission de Nombres grounds. When everyone was gone and you were waiting to get back to your wife, my daughter, who was 8 yrs old at the time were blessed enough to spend some quiet time with you.
I thought of you today as I fought the battle at the VA Hospital on day 52 in Tampa FL with my Fathers Surgeon Major/Dr James Obney who seems to have forgotten the words you shared with my daughter and me that time in 1991 at the Moving Wall. Honor, Duty... I will remind this surgeon that he has a duty to restore my fathers health. My father could breathe, walk, pee, eat before this surgeon touched him. Every day for 52 days I've fought with this surgeon to do his job.... Sammy, I don't want my father to die in the VA hospital because some doctor won't do his job. My Crusade will go on long after my Dad goes home, I will make certain my voice is heard for Veterans everywhere so that what happened to my father doesn't happen to another Veteran. I would be kind enough to direct me to someone outside of the Tampa VA that will look into the situation...My dad, My daughter and Myself would be eternally grateful. Blessings...Lynn

Mr. Davis,
It's been six years since I have had the honor and privilege of hearing your story of true heroism. At the time, I was the First Sergeant of Alpha Battery 1st Battalion, 33rd Field Artillery stationed in Bamberg Germany. I wanted to thank you for your words of inspiration, that I still use today in training soldiers and Cadets. Train to standard, not to time!! Your words of wisdom inspired me to train my soldiers harder than they have ever been trained before. After your heart felt comments of inspiration in June 2001, my unit deployed to Kosovo and Operation Iragi Freedom with the 1st Infantry Division. The soldiers told me afterwards, that the training they conducted for these operations was more difficult than actually conducting the mission itself. All of the soldiers from my unit returned home to their loved ones. Thank you again for everything you have done for me, our soldiers, our country, and your continued personal sacrifice to inspire others. Duty, Honor,! Country!!
MSG Ricky L. Wheeler  Roswell, NM

SFC Davis, thank you so much for extraordinary visit to Haines City High School, Florida today. Your presentation truly motivated our young cadets and serve as an inspiration to us all.

Sammy, You probably don't remember me, but I met you several times when we were raising funds for the Vietnam Memorial in Springfield. You might remember my husband Toby Brant. Toby was a tanker with the 2nd/34th Armor at Cu Chi, 1969. He lost both legs due to a booby trap.I want to let you know Toby was killed in a pickup truck accident Oct 16,2005.He was a big guy with a loud hearty laugh and hard to forget. His was one of the largest funerals ever in this small town of Charleston. Bob Mathias, Lee Oakley, and all the Patriot guys were here. I established a scholarship in his name at Lake Land College in Mattoon. It's for the spouse, child or grandchild(step kids too) of a veteran. Toby's second edition of his book came out 2 weeks after he died. I would like to send you a copy. Please contact me via email with your address and I'll mail on to you. Toby attended a big fundraier for the memorial at Mike's in Flat Rock all those many years ago. Where is Mike? He stayed overn! ight here way back then. I had artificial legs all over the place! I didnt get on line until a short time ago. If I had known you had a web site I would have contacted you sooner. God Bless You Sammy. Sincerely,

Brother Sammy,
I want to thank you for speaking to my students at Clark-Pleasant Middle School. I really believe that it will make a difference in some of their lives. They will remember that they held the medal and met the man who earned it. They will also possibly think one day when times are tough for them, "If he can do that, I can do this." It was wonderful to see you again, and a belated congratulations on your marriage. Mrs. Davis seems like a very wonderful woman. I am very happy for the both of you. Feel free to stop by the school any time you would like. You are more than welcome here. Take care and God bless you and your family.

One of the hallmarks of a hero is humility. Here is an example of Sammy's.
I remember one time I was at the Howard County Vietnam Veterans Organization (HCVVO) reunion in Kokomo Indiana. Sammy was the Master of Ceremonies. When he wasn't on stage, Sammy was out on the grounds picking up litter that his fellow veterans had dropped on the ground. That really impressed me. He was there as the guest of honor. And of all the heroes there that day, he was probably the most recognized and the most honored. Yet he chose to spend his off-stage time in humble service picking up trash.
I've seen him and met him at other reunions too. He is truly an example to be admired and emulated.

SFC Davis,
My name is WO1 Robert Evans. I had the great honor and privilege of meeting you and hearing your story at the Land Combat Expo in Heidelburg Germany in 2003. Your story was a great inspiration to me. Your devotion to your fellow soldiers made a huge impact on me as I went into Iraq. I tried to remember what you went through on that fateful night and emulate your actions as I served during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I was lucky enough to bring all of my soldiers home uninjured. We traveled in more than 200 convoys through Iraq. No person in the world I have met has ever impressed me until the point that I met you. You are a true hero and inspiration to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coastguardsmen fighting this war. Thank you for your service and for what you did for our great country, Sir.
WO1 Robert E. Evans
An inspired and grateful soldier

Mr. Davis: I've visited your site many times, never cease to be amazed at the lives you've touched. I first met you back in '96 when the MVVA sponsored the "Moving Wall". You were the main guest speaker. We had worked hard to find one of your 'missing comrades' from 30 years ago...were successful. It was hard keeping our secret quiet...but we did. In a crowd of thousands, there wasn't a dry eye to be seen when you two were reunited! I have great memories of this special time and thank you for taking the time to sign our Programs and your photo. I currently serve as Ex. VP of the Silver Star Families, dedicated to honoring our Wounded Soldiers and their families. Thank you for dropping by to sign our Guest Book. You have been an inspiration to so many, touching each of us in your unique way. May God continue to bless your Mission, as we are blessed in just knowing you're still fighting.
God willing, we will meet again.

It was so nice to see you and Dixie in Indianapolis recently. Paula, Kelli and I were so mad about your medal being stolen but were so relieved when it was returned to you. This past Saturday, Sept. 17, 2005, Paula, Brian and I were in New Albany, IN for the rededication of the grave site of Civil War Medal of Honor recipient Charles H. Seston and it was impressive. The Civil War re-enactors did an outstanding job and it was very moving when the bugler played TAPS and the new stone was uncovered. When I spoke to the crowd I told them how important guys like Sgt. Seston are to our country and need to be remembered. I also told them about my friend, Sgt. Sammy Davis, and what a great and inspiring job you do when you go out and talk to the students and how important it is that the students of today get to hear a true AMERICAN HERO tell them that their American heritage can't be taken for granted. Sammy, keep up the good work and give Dixie a big hug for us. We hop!
e to get to see you before too long.

Mr. Sammy L. Davis, I really enjoyed meeting you at the Niles memorial service for the revealing of the monument downtown. I was part of the family that had to take all those pictures and autographs. I think you'd remember. Thank you for sharing your story to all that had came to see the revealing of the monument. It had really touched me and my friends. It brought a tear to my eye to never forget those who have fought and fallen. I hope you can come back to visit the monument. I would like to mention a terrible thing that has happened in our town though. There is a skate park down the road from the monument. Some skate boarders decided to ride over the bricks. And now there are 13 broken bricks. They will be replaced but it is a sad thing to see in our community. The city has promised to find these people and punish them with fines for the bricks. This is terrible because people put a lot of time and effort into this great memorial and now the respect from some people have been lost do to this incedent. I hope you read this and know that the city will find the person and/or people responsible for this. Thanks again for coming toour town and touching so many lives. Thank you and God Bless.

Dear Mr. Davis: I have just seen the documentary “A Time for Honor: Stories from Vietnam” on my local public television station in NYC this Sunday afternoon (9/26/04) and I felt compelled to write to you to express great admiration and thanks to you for your service to America. Perhaps the service that you have rendered since leaving Vietnam has been as great if not greater than your service in Vietnam because of the way you have touched so many lives so deeply and so positively. Your exemplary service and character are truly an inspiration and example for others to honor. I feel lucky just to have seen your appearance on “A Time for Honor.” One can only hope that more Americans will hear your words and follow your example. Thank you again for your sacrifice and contributions for one and all.

Thanks for being there when I was in high school and college in the 60's. (I graduated HS in 1967.) I didn't have to go then, but some of my high school friends and acquaintances did. At least one I know of didn't come back. Another got wounded. I'll take any chance I get now to go support the services - because of you and others like you.

I could see you were in great demand and didn't want to take any time away from the Vietnam Vets at the dedication of the Vietnam Memorial in Pittsburg Ks. I was in the Marine Corps from 1973 to 1975 and the Army Reserve from 1979 to 1994. I enlisted in the Corps so I could go to Vietnam like my Brother but did not get the opportunity. Now that I am older and wiser I suppose I was lucky I didn't. I can only imagine what all of you must have gone through and have nothing but the highest respect for you and your fellow serviceman.

Thank you sir for the service and honor you have shown and demonstrated not only in battle, but also in the life you have lived after returning to "the world" (as we always referred to the USA). May God bless you, your family and the U.S.A. - Jerry Bowman (Sgt. U.S. Army until March 1970)

Sammy, I am from the era of Vietnam. I saw many of my classmates, when they graduated, shipped to Vietnam, some of them did not come back. Now I face seeing my niece being sent. Granted she is with a hospital group, and will be spending the next 3 months preparing to go overseas. You still worry. She is the mother of 1 and wife. But I know in her heart she is doing what is expected of her. God bless each and everyone of you that were in each of the wars from World War I to now. With out you we would not be free.

Mr. Davis, Just wanted to write a quick letter to tell you of the honor of meeting you through my course of work with the Indiana State Police. We met for the first time during the 2001 Police and Fire games when I was a member of the Indiana State Police SWAT team and you spent time with each team prior to each event. I thank you for taking the time to be with us that week. I have had the fortunate experience to be accepted and attend the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, KS while a member of the 76th BDE, Indiana National Guard located in Indianapolis, IN. While at school I have been tasked to give a short presentation on a MOH recipient. You were the first one to come to my mind. It is an honor to have an opportunity to talk about a man who served his country as you did for whom I have had the honor to meet. With the utmost regards, Major Robert Burke, INARNG

SFC Davis, I am writing to let you know how much your site meant to me. It is hard sometimes to see the things my country does; and I consider myself a great patriot. I met you in White Sands with 2/4 FA, the MLRS BN that showed the world how it's done in it's aggressive march to Baghdad. They made me proud, and I was proud to have been in a unit that could claim a man like you as an alumni. You are an inspiration to me, as I tried to inspire my troops to greatness. Tho I did not fight this last time with the BN, I sent over some well trained troops; I liked to think I was there in spirit. You awarded me a Coin for Excellence one day in the Sands, shortly before you had an open session with the troops of the BN. It liked to make me cry, and even now moves me; I cannot express how much that coin means to me among all else I have earned; it is the most special. I thought of you recently as I was chronicling my military career and life trying to sort through some stuff. I am proud to have met you, sir, and honored to have worn the same uniform. I hope I did it right by you, and shall have earned the right to consider myself Your Brother in Arms, *excellent song, BTW* Rayvn

We are stationed at Schofield Barracks in HI and recently you spoke to my husband's unit. I wanted to let you know how much you really touched his heart and soul. He came home and immediately told me your story over dinner and when he was just half way through we were both crying. My father's best friend was killed in Vietnam at 18 years old ... his name was Randy Cagle and ever since I went to The Wall in 99 I have had the greatest respect for you and all of the soldiers who have fought for our country ... especially at Vietnam. Thank you so much for speaking from your heart and telling your story. I know it must be difficult in ways for I have met others who have fought there and never like to discuss it but you will never know how much your speaking means to those men and women. God Bless you and keep you and yours. I would have really have loved to meet you and listen but wasn't able to. Maybe if you are able to come back to Hawaii I can be there.

Sammy, I want to thank you for your visits to Lawrenceburg for the Moving Wall in June of 2002 and your return visit for the dedication of the " War Memorial to the Common Man." I'll always be indebted to Dave Teke for bringing you to Lawrenceburg and giving me the honor of meeting you. Your most recent visit in September was especially rewarding because we were able to visit the Greendale Middle School and St. Lawrence School where you were able to mingle with the students. I was amazed at the way they reacted to you and the many interesting questions they had for you. This is what the students of America need today. They need to realize that the true heroes are their parents, doctors, nurses, clergy, firefighters, police officers, teachers and the veterans of America who have given so much so we can remain the greatest nation in the world. I was so honored that I was able to introduce you to the students and then sit and watch as they warmed up to you. As a Medal of Honor recipient you stand out as someone they can look up to and your message to them is something they can carry through life with them. I've had several students and adults stop me and tell me how much they enjoyed your visits. I hope you and your family are doing well. We are certainly keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers. My wife, Paula, said she also has talked to several people who were at the Wall and the Memorial Dedication and they told her how much they appreciated and enjoyed the festivities. Sammy, keep up the good work and keep the voice of our freedom alive. Again, I want to thank Marie Edwards and her staff, the Lawrenceburg Bicentennial Committee, Lawrenceburg City Council, Mayor Paul Tremain and especially Dave and Linda Teke for bringing you to town and for a great town celebration. As I said when I introduced you to the students- - - - A true American Hero and my friend, Sammy Davis. I hope to see you soon and hopefully you'll get back to Lawrenceburg before too long. Take care !!! PG Gentrup

Whenever I am having a rough time, I think about the "Forrest Gump" story that you told the kids one year when The Moving Wall was here in Skidmore. "You are only down when you quit getting up." You have no idea how many times that message has helped me 'get back up'. Thank you for your inspiration, and your selfless devotion not only to "Duty, Honor, Country", but to you fellow man. love, cheryl

Mr. Davis: I know you have been told this before but I must say it again. Thank you for being there when your country needed you and giving above and beyond the call of duty. Not only in wartime but also in peace, you are an outstanding role model for the American youth. Where do we find such men? Men such as yourself that appear from the ranks of the common soldier to distinguish themselves when faced with a seemingly hopeless situation and overwhelming odds. Thank God for men such as you.

Mr. Davis: It was an honor to meet you at the 4th of July parade in Cody this year. We appreciate the time you took to stop and take a picture with our 2 daughters. We will keep it in our photo album for them to look back on in the years to come. Thank you to you and all veterans of our great country for the service that you have provided in keeping our citizens safe. God bless. --- Keith and Anne Keehn 7/14/02

Mr. Davis, I just wanted to wish you a belated happy 4th of July. I was a listener to the radio show when you were a guest on the Monsters of the Mid-Day with Russ, Jim, Savannah and the rest. When ever I hear a rebroadcast of that show, of your speach, I still get a lump in my throat even more so then when I hear the National Anthym. I wanted to tell you that I used a quote from you on a mailing to all my friends and relatives, your definition of freedom. I hope you don't mind. I look forward to meeting you one day. Thank you again for the part you played to protect this ".... one nation, under God...." Respectfully, Joseph Barbarise

I too had the privlage of meeting you during your stay in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. I was one of the Volunteer Coordinators. I didn't know I knew so many people that were in Vietnam or had family or friends who didn't make it back home. I still can't say I know how it feels to lose someone from a war or any other reasons other than natural causes, but that weekend gave me a real good idea of the pain and suffering this families and friends went through. Listening to you and to Pat Bowes really helped me to understand what this was all about. Someone that weekend (June 6 - 9) said, Maybe not in these exact words but, "Even if you don't know anyone on the Wall, go to the Wall and touch a name and say a prayer for that person and you will connect with a sence of pride you have ever experienced". I did that and I was overwhelmed by the feelings I had of being so PROUD to have been apart of something so Moving. If there is ANY ONE out there who hasn't visited The Moving Wall The Wall that Heals or any of the other traveling walls, please do so it is truly an experience you will NEVER forget. It is NOT just a wall with lot of Names on it. It is a WALL of HEROS!!!!!

I thought what you done for those Americans is something that will NEVER be forgotten. Your speech changed me. It tought me that war is something that war is something not to joke about and that I should be proud to be an American. I would like for you to e-mail me back if you find the time.

To SFC Davis: This is the first time I have ever written a letter of this sort, I just feel compelled to do so now. I believe that it was in this past school year, that my son came home from school at Westlake Elementary, very excited about meeting "a guy that was in the Vietnam war and got an award called The Congtessional Medal of Honor." He told me all about it, your name and was very excited that he got to hold "The Medal". As I was in the US Army and stationed in Germany at the time he was born, I thought maybe he associated my service with yours. I explained to him that that was the highest award a serviceman can get, and that most people who received the CMH were killed while doing something extremely brave. Your name has come up several times since. You made quite an impression. I had lunch at Daves All American Pizza in Danville, Indiana today, and found your autographed photo under the glass top on the table. I recognized the name immediately from the stories my son told me. Also there was a narrative of your citation. As a veteran of 8 years active duty, I was the subject of many a narrative for award recommendation, and am still filled with pride when I read them, after 11 years of civilian life. None of my citations read like yours. But as I read the narrative of your award, I was nearly overwhelmed with pride and emotion. I know that I didn't make the contribution or the sacrifice that you did, but I am still proud that we wore the same uniform. So I say, Thank you, Sergeant Davis, for being a positive role model, and I will never let my son forget who you are. I will also remind both of my children of the sacrifices that you and your brothers have made for us. I am happy that you are still here to tell your story, as so many others did not get that opportunity. You are one of very few, as you know. I wish you Godspeed in all of your efforts, and again, thank you for everything. Dave Garrison

G'day Sammy, Pleased you wandered into the "Boozer" for a gander and a tinnie, Always pleased to have our American mates drop by. Although it is 32 years ago we would like to thank you blokes for the support and back up in doing a tough job in Vietnam. We were but a small committment and going into the field doing our little "thing" it was reassuring that not far away the Yanks were there to back us up if we got into too much poo, that we needed help. So near yet so far it was a comforting feeling so again thanks mate. Pedro 8th, Battalion Royal Australian Regiment Ps: will establish a link to your great site.

Mr.Davis You are an amazing individual. I can hardly explain to you the way that I'm feeling right now. My name is Megan McBryar. I'm the one that started crying. I told my friend Kate that was there listening today also that I don't know what to do with myself when I come across a person who touches me the way you did. The way you looked, spoke, and felt is what got to me. I could see in your eyes the man that deserved that Congressional Medal of Honor, a man that represents the wonderful part of America, a man that is full of life and feeling, and a man that I will never forget even though I spent only 45 minutes with him. In a way, you remind me of the ideal father I would like to have. I don't know exactly why you came across to me as a father figure, but you did, and in that means a lot to me even though you weren't aware of doing so. I want to say thank you from the bottom of my soul for coming today and sharing with all of us what you experienced in the Vietnam war. I know that you inspired many people today including myself, and inspiration is something that could get someone through life. It's like having something to look forward to and keep pushing you to do good and knowing that there are others out in this world similar to you that can keep touching the hearts of people everywhere you go. Once you recieve this email, I would like it very much if you emailed back. It would make me even happier if we could keep in touch. Thank you again. With deepest emotion, Megan

Dear Mr. Davis: I'm sure you won't remember this, but ten years ago you visited Wheaton North High School in Wheaton, Illinois, where you spoke to an assembly of U.S. History students. I was student teaching there at the time and I was so honored to have had the privilege to meet you following your presentaion. It was an experience I will never forget. You signed a photo for me and made the comment that your wife's name is also "Jo". I promised you that when I had my own classroom one day, that your picture and your story would have a special place in my room and that the students that I teach will know your story. I have been teaching at Dundee-Crown High School in Carpentersville,Illinois since 1992, and since then, your face and your story welcomes all who enter Room 214.I have a wall dedicated to those who serve to preserve our sacred freedoms, and your photo is the focal point. I am proud to be among those with whom your life has touched, and I promise to continue sharing your story with my students, so they, too, will remember the sacrifices and valor of our nation's veterans, and the high price of freedom that they have paid for all of us. I am grateful to have the opportunity to forward these thoughts to you, and want you to know how much I have enjoyed the "homeofheroes" website! It is a marvelous teaching tool and one I'm certain my students will appreciate. I hope this message finds you and your family well. God bless you, Sammy L. Davis! Yours very sincerely, Jo Helminski
