Retired Army Major Mike Perkins wants Sgt. Ed Eaton to receive a Medal of Honor for what he saw the 20-year-old sniper do on April 3, 1969, atop a downed Huey in the Mekong Delta. Armed with an M-16 and a broken M-14 sniper rifle, Eaton held off a platoon of Viet Cong until his wounded comrades could be rescued. A true “Army of One.” And this was only one day in a remarkable war story featured on The History Channel and in a candid memoir by Eaton titled Mekong Mud Dogs. Ed joins us tonight to talk about his brutal Vietnam service in the 9th Infantry Division, his art, and his five-decade recovery after returning home.
