Nearly 50 years ago, Roger Donlon, of Saugerties, New York displayed incredible bravery when his outpost was attacked by Vietcong. Outnumbered 3-1, he led his Special Forces team in a successful defense of the outpost, rescuing wounded men despite suffering repeated serious injuries from mortar fire himself. For this, he was awarded the first Medal of Honor in the Vietnam War.
