Big & Rich - 8th of November Documentary: A True Story of Pain & Honor

Recommended Posts

Published on Feb 7, 2013

On November 8th, 1965, the 173rd Airborne Brigade on Operation Hump, War Zone D in Vietnam were ambushed by over 1200 V.C. Forty-eight American soldiers lost their lives that day. Severely wounded and risking his own life, Lawrence Joll, a medic, was the first living black man since the Spanish-American War to receive the United States Medal of Honor for saving so many lives in the midst of battle that day. Our friend, Nialls Harris, retired 25 years, United States Army (the guy who gave Big Kenny his top hat) was one of the wounded who lived. This song is his story. Caught in the action of 'kill or be killed' - 'greater love hath no man to lay down his life for a friend.'

Thanks TG for sharing this. For those of you who have not been there, you will never know the true meaning of the word Camaraderie. Big and Rich did a good job with their song.
