Medal of Honor Recipient Awarded Sachem
Governor Eric Holcomb has awarded the state's highest honor to Sammy L. Davis, a native of Freedom, Indiana and recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor. The award is given to those in recognition of "a lifetime of excellence and moral virtue that has brought credit and honor to Indiana." Following Monday's ceremony, Davis compared receiving the Sachem to the day he received the Medal of Honor from President Lyndon B. Johnson in 1969.
