An extraordinary tale of friendship and sacrifice...
A couple recent books - On Desperate Ground by Hampton Sides and Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship, and Sacrifice by Adam Makos - include and tell the story of Jesse Brown and Tom Hudner, an extraordinary tale of friendship and sacrifice. Brown was the first African American to win Navy "Wings of Gold," and Hudner was awarded a Medal of Honor for his actions in attempting to save his friend. This is their story and Jesse Brown's granddaughter, Jessica Knight Henry, joins me to provide insight from inside the family and share the legacy of these two incredible men.
