Representative Hays: "Drew Dix is a True American Hero

On September 22 I had the distinct privilege of visiting with Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient Drew Dix. Dix, one of only 78 living Medal of Honor recipients, was honored at the UNITED-Honoring Our Veterans event at Turtle Run. He is a decorated United States military veteran and retired Major in the United States Army.

Drew Dennis Dix received the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Vietnam War, and he was the first enlisted Special Forces soldier to receive the medal. An author and founder of the Center for American Values, Drew is a true American hero. His remarkable story of returning again and again on his own volition to save American lives under heavy fire and extraordinary circumstances is truly awe-inspiring.
