On May 2nd, 1968, Captain James Livingston and his Marine company moved through an open rice paddy, while taking heavy fire from the enemy in an effort to help another stranded group of marines.
His action on that day in Vietnam earned, now retired, Major General Livingston our nation’s highest honor for military service, the Medal of Honor.
Today, we meet General Livingston and hear his story on this episode of PICK UP THE SIX podcast.
