Not One But Two Medal of Honor Recipients Share Their Story


William Rattikin and Sam Elkind

Medal of Honor recipients Sammy Davis and Ty Carter shared stories with the Upper School students on Oct. 21.

FWCD Upper School students received a treat a couple of weeks ago, as two Medal of Honor recipients shared their stories. U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Ty Carter and U.S. Army Sgt. Sammy L. Davis (the inspiration for “Forrest Gump”), along with Iraq Veteran Gary Linfoot and country music star Phil Vandel, all left the students with inspiring words.

Also hear from other FWCD Veterans, including US Division Head Bill Arnold and MS history teacher Chuck Maddux as they share their experiences.
