NRA Life of Duty Patriot Profile Feature “Choosing Honor”


While the word “hero” may hold a different meaning to many, I think we all can agree that Sergeant Ed Eaton demonstrated immense courage and heroism the night his helicopter got shot down during the Vietnam war. At only nineteen years old, Ed single handedly fought off two separate groups of Viet Cong with nothing more than a broken sniper rifle and the cover of the night – an act that not only saved his own life, but the life of his fellow comrade in arms.
