Medal of Honor documentary

Tampa -

Producer Roger Sherman used interviews with recipients and old photographs, producer to dig into the history of the Medal of Honor, from its early days in the Civil War to today. Among the stories featured are those of Vietnam Veteran Mike Thornton, who survived a grenade attack and rescued two of his buddies. Sherman was particularly affected by the story of Sgt. Paul Smith of Tampa, a posthumous Medal of Honor recipient in the Iraq War. WUSF's Susan Giles Wantuck spoke to Sherman about the film.
