Summary
He book "every American should read" (Vietnam) now available in trade paperback. Here is the powerful story of one man's fight against bigotry, paralysis and his war enemy that led to the Medal of Honor. From migrant farm-worker and middle-school dropout to recipient of his country's highest award for bravery, Roy Benavidez demonstrated the courage and fortitude of an American hero. The half-Yaqui Indian, half-Mexican orphan fought his way out of the bigotry of South Texas to serve with the Army's elite -- the Special Forces. In February, 1981, President Reagan awarded him the Medal of Honor
